About the Festival

This is the second year of the Ann N. Johnson UNCF Jazz Festival benefiting the Augusta United Negro College Fund (UNCF) Campaign. For over 69 years, UNCF has provided billions of dollars in scholarships for students with financial challenges. The jazz festival named after arts supporter and Paine College Alum, Ann N. Johnson, raised $38,000 during the inaugural jazz festival in 2013. To donate to the UNCF Campaign, click here.

  • Sounds Unlimited
  • Mike Frost Band
  • TuTu D'Vyne featuring Quiet Storm
  • Wondaland Arts Society with National recording artist Roman GianArthur
