JerryFest, a FREE outdoor concert annually held on the first Sunday in October, returns October 1, 2023, and will feature more music and regional acts on two stages this year. JerryFest runs from 11:30 am–8:00 pm with an official after party at Publico from 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm. Multiple bands will be performing Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead music, along with the addition this year of some other jam–band favorites.
“We’re very excited for this year’s festival expansion,” says Heather McDonald, executive director of the Five Points Association. “Attendees will not only get to enjoyGrateful Dead music they are accustomed to listening to that day, but also the musical catalogs of other bands who embrace the jam-band culture. This is going to be a musical fun-filled day for all to enjoy down in the Five Points district.”
