Beaufort Arts and Music is a volunteer-run, 501c3 nonprofit organization working with and in the community to bring tourism and music to Beaufort and to the Crystal Coast. For over 30 years, the festival has taken place in May in historic Beaufort. The town is packed on Friday and Saturday with amazing bands, food and a fun-filled kid’s area. Locals and tourists alike enjoy the beautiful weather and some pretty great music. As laid back as the festival weekend is, it actually takes a whole year to plan. The volunteer-run festival committee works tirelessly to get the final weekend ready to go. Fundraising occurs throughout the year by sponsorships and sanctioned events; these events serve to bring people together in a unique way and promote local art, activities and a community feeling. The money raised from the events goes toward funding the May festival but also goes back into the community, specifically the community’s children. As much as we are into our community, we are equally into its music. We live it. We breathe it.
