JerryFest

Presented by the Five Points Association, Loose Lucy’s and Mind Harvest Press
Sunday, October 3, 2021, 2pm-10pm

The Five Points Association, Loose Lucy’s and Mind Harvest Press Presents JerryFest! The festival will be live and in-person on Sunday, October 3, 2021. A FREE outdoor concert held at the main Five Points fountain on Saluda Avenue, JerryFest runs from 2pm-10pm and features multiple bands all performing Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead music.

Since 2014, the event has welcomed around 1,200 to the Five Points village for a family- and pet-friendly afternoon of fellowship and music along with artisan crafts, food, beverage and merchandise vendors. JerryFest was started to commemorate the life and art of Jerry Garcia. Rock guitarist and musical icon, Garcia was best known as the lead guitarist for the Grateful Dead that inspired legions of followers known as “Deadheads.”

The music for the 2021 edition kicks off with the Columbia Community Drum Circle, local acts Big Sky Revival, Stillhouse and Gentle Jack followed by a regional headliner – the cleverly-named JGBCB (Jerry Garcia Band Cover Band). Red Shack Pickers will also be playing on the fountain plaza throughout the day.
Music Lineup:
Cola Community Drum Circle – 2pm-3pm
Gentle Jack – 3pm-4pm
Big Sky Revival – 4:30pm-5:30pm
Stillhouse – 6pm-7pm
JGBCB – 7:30pm-10pm
JerryFest is also partnering with the Columbia Fireflies at Segra Park for their Grateful Dead Night on Friday, September 17th! It’s a full tribute to the band all game long! Enjoy a pre-game performance by local band Stillhouse (featuring Loose Lucy’s own Jenn McCallister), and make sure to get there early as the first 1,000 fans in attendance will get a Fireflies Grateful Dead t-shirt! The Fireflies will also be wearing Grateful Dead themed jerseys that will be auctioned off for charity during the game.
Tickets for the game start as low as just $5 and can be purchased in advance or day of at the Fireflies Box Office. You can get your tickets online here: https://www.firefliestickets.com/…/kannapolis-cannon…/. First pitch with our Dancing Bear is set for 7:05pm, and gates will open at 6pm. We hope to see you all there!
We’ll also have a booth at the game promoting JerryFest with a photo opp with the Fireflies’ very own Mason and JerryFest’s Dancing Bear! You’ll also get to enjoy a special Grateful Dead-themed cocktail – “Sunrise Daydream” – available for purchase during the game! Come out and support our local baseball team and get in the spirit of JerryFest before the festival!
