From local acts to national headliners, a multitude of venues will showcase their sound to music lovers from Georgia and beyond.
This is How I #BraggJam
Filled with music, entertainment, and arts, this two-day event will be sure to appeal to everyone. On Friday, the night opens with a variety show of musical ensembles featuring headliners of Montreal and Filmore. On Saturday morning, Families are invited to the free daytime event, Arts and Kids Festival, where they can create, perform, and play in Macon’s Cherry Street Plaza. On Saturday night, the Legendary Concert Crawl, Macon’s favorite summer experience, covers a spectrum of genres from electronic to rock n’ roll.
As you’re planning your concert crawl and other weekend events, here’s some info on our street closures for you to keep in mind. While there are no shuttles running this year, we’ve kept those areas for rideshare drop off and pick up: 2nd & Poplar (closest to the Blacksmith Shop for picking up your tickets or chilling in the VIP lounge!) as well as 3rd & Mulberry. Parts of Poplar and most of Cherry and Second will be closed and have no parking. The more you know! #braggjam #braggjam2019

From the Hargray Capital Theatre and The Crazy Bull, to the Hummingbird Stage & Taproom and Grant’s lounge, over 10 venues will headline these acts.
