(WOUB) - The Athens County Convention and Visitors Bureau is trying something new this weekend -- a music festival.

It's billed as the First Annual Athens Winter Jazz and Blues Festival.

Paige Alost is executive director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau.

She says there will be three days of music, starting Friday night.

The festival will span six venues and feature ten different musical acts.

Proceeds from the event will go to a grant program that gives money to nonprofit organizations in Athens County that host tourism events.
