Friday, September 21, 2018 4:00 PM by Kayleigh Fox

The Festival Capital of Georgia ...has a wonderfully busy month of October! From annual festivals to brand new events, Macon is ready to combine its heritage and love for family fun for a jam-packed month. Be sure to stop by one of these featured events to get into the fall season!

  The Weekend ... always has so much in-store. We've got to live it up to its potential. But, sometime making plans for a fantastic adventure can be tough. With so much on our plate and limited time to get everything done during the week, all we want is a relaxing weekend full of new experiences. So we cut out all of the work. Here are some excellent adventures and things to do this upcoming weekend. No need to budget the bank, all of these activities are at a bargain!

June marks the beginning of African American Music Appreciation month, originally proclaimed Black Music Month by President Jimmy Carter on June 7, 1979 and later given its’ current name by former President Barack Obama in his 2016 proclamation. Macon is excited to celebrate and participate in such a strong musical heritage the entire month of June! Here are some things to do.
