Augusta, GA :: August 12, 2020 – It is with a heavy heart that the Border Bash Foundation announces the cancellation of the 27th annual event celebrating the football rivalry between the University of South Carolina and the University of Georgia.

Border Bash Foundation President, Joel Simmons shared, “We’re obviously disappointed not to be able to have this traditional fall event. In addition to Border Bash being a fun way for fans to celebrate before the game, we also raise a lot of money for the CSRA. However, the safety of everyone involved – from cheerleaders to bands and attendees to staff – is of the utmost importance. Letting safety guide our decision-making is what ultimately led us to cancel the 2020 event.”

Since its inception, Border Bash has raised over $935,000 for local children’s charities. In 2019, Border Bash moved the annual event to SRP Park for the first time and the Foundation had planned a return in November of 2020.

Border Bash will return to SRP Park in 2021, with a specific date announcement following the release of the SEC football schedule. “We look forward to seeing football fans back next fall when we will come together for the 27

th time to celebrate the football rivalry between Georgia and South Carolina,” said Simmons.

Border Bash brings together live music, the University of Georgia & University of South Carolina Cheerleaders & Mascots the night before the Georgia – South Carolina football game for fans to come together in the border city of Augusta.
