RitzFest at the Historic Ritz Theater in Newberry

Saturday, February 4 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm

$10 – $15.00


Come be in the In Crowd at the First Annual RitzFest, on Saturday February 4 at the Ritz Theater in Main Street in Downtown Newberry. RitzFest is aiming to raise at least $3,000 for suicide prevention!

According to the CDC’s WISQARS National Data Report from 2019, suicide is the third leading cause of death of 10-24 year olds in South Carolina. The Jason Flatt Act was signed into SC law by Governor Nikki Haley in 2012. Sponsored by the The Jason Foundation (JFI), training in suicide awareness is provided to public school teachers each year in South Carolina. Headlined by Chris Reed and the Bad Kids, and joined by 9 other performances, all donating their time, the event is giving all proceeds to JFI.


RitzFest doors open at 11:00 a.m. and live music is from noon – 7:00 P.M. Door prizes will be offered, food trucks will be on site, and concessions will be available for purchase. All proceeds from concessions and 10% of truck sales are going to TJFI


Tickets are available through the Newberry Community Players website. For information please contact [email protected]. A current poster is attached.
