Organized by the Alex Townsend Memorial Foundation, Savannah’s A-Town Get Down is an interactive art and music festival dedicated to providing access to the arts for Savannah’s youth, inspiring them to discover the confidence and self-esteem that comes with creative self expression. Since the inaugural festival in 2011, the A-Town Get Down Music & Art Festival celebrates the life of Alex Townsend, affectionately called A-Town, by making the arts more accessible to underserved communities throughout Savannah, the city he loved.
