Get ready for a weekend filled with wine, great art and pastries because the Macon Wine and Arts Festival will be making its sophomore debut. It will run Sept. 26-28, and will be hosted by the Mill Hill Community Arts Center and organized by the Macon Arts Alliance. Events will include three days of wine tastings, art exhibits and a boozy bake sale. 

The Festival was created by the Macon Arts Alliance in order to bring more attention to the art community in Macon and to draw people together. Marketing Coordinator Kathy Nolan said she is excited to be involved in this year’s event. 

As one of our primary programs, Macon Arts Alliance … has been a leader in restoring, funding and providing arts and community programming,” Nolan said. 

The event will only be open to those who are 21 or older. Thursday will kick off opening night with a silent auction at the Hay House, as well as a toast and taste. The opening event will cost $40 per ticket. 

Friday night will feature a boozy bake sale, celebrity pastry chefs and cocktail pairings. Tickets to Friday’s events are $20. 

Saturday will include a wine tasting event, art exhibits, appetizers and a DJ. Tickets to Saturday’s festivities will be $40.  

During each event, several pieces of local art will be on display for purchase. Nolan said there will be “original ceramic and hand-blown wine glasses and visual art … available for sale at Mill Hill (Community Arts Center) on Friday and Saturday.” 

Tickets for each event can be purchased through the Macon Arts Alliance website or through the festival’s Facebook page. Tickets can be purchased individually or as a pass for $75.

Aside from the silent auction, all of the events will be taking place at the Mill Hill Community Arts Center, located in downtown Macon on Clinton Street. For more information about the event, visit the Facebook event page.
