The Five Points Association announces the return of JerryFest on Sunday, October 2, 2022. A FREE outdoor concert annually held on the first Sunday in October, JerryFest runs from 2pm-10pm and features multiple bands all performing Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead music.
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 last time the Grateful Dead performed in Columbia was on Halloween 1985 at the Carolina Coliseum. JerryFest aims to recreate that atmosphere in Five Points.
