The Grand Finale
We hate to see you leave, but we love to see you walk away! The final hoorah for the festival will be held March 27 at Wesleyan College. There will be bluegrass entertainment all day by Old Mill Road Band, fireworks at dusk, and even activities for the little ones. So bring a picnic blanket, bring a Frisbee, or bring a friend, just make sure you come out and say goodbye to Macon’s favorite week of the year! Presented by Capital City Bank and Butler Automotive Group, the beginning of the end starts at 5 pm and admission is free all day, so you don’t have an excuse NOT to come.
