AthFest Music & Arts Festival
AthFest Music & Arts Festival

Fall in Athens brings with it many things – high-stakes football games, cool, crisp weather, and Historic Athens Porchfest. Featuring over 200 performers in seven of the city’s beautiful neighborhoods, the annual event draws thousands to revel in the music and get an up-close look at some of Athens’ most historic places.

Earlier this week, I spoke to Tommy Valentine, Executive Director of Historic Athens, about the event, which takes place this Sunday, October 15. Here’s our conversation.

Alexia Ridley joined WUGA as Television and Radio News Anchor and Reporter in 2013. When WUGA TV concluded operations, she became the primary Reporter for WUGA Radio. Alexia came to Athens from Macon where she served as the News Director and show host for WGXA TV. She's a career journalist and Savannah native hailing from the University of Michigan. However, Alexia considers herself an honorary UGA DAWG!
