With the holiday season coming up, Macon is going to be a hotbed of artistic and cultural events. There will be activities for everyone, from festivals to food trucks to fire breathers, all in the heart of the city.
First Friday in Downtown Macon
Although NewTown Macon hosts First Friday every month, November’s event will be one for the books. Newtown will be hosting a Garage Meet-Up, a rooftop drive up party on Mulberry Street, and Comic Book Plus and Reboot will host a Halloween party. There will also be events for the entire family at The Grand Opera House, The Macheran Art Center, Macon Arts Alliance and 576 Center for Renewal.
Movie Night at the Ballpark
Macon’s Baseball team, Macon Bacon, will be hosting a movie night at the ballpark on Saturday, Nov. 9, showing “The Sandlot” from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Instead of having a cover charge, Macon Bacon is asking for donations for Loaves & Fishes. You can donate items like nonperishable foods, baby diapers and laundry detergent at the gate.
Vegan Fall Festival in Tattnall Square Park
On Saturday, Nov. 16, Harmony_Vibes and Macon Vegans will be hosting a vegan Fall Festival in Tattnall Square Park. Local vendors will set up at 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. selling vegan food, jewelry and beauty products.
The Cider Social at The Society Garden
On Nov. 23, the Society Garden will be hosting a cider and pie pairing event. This Cider Social will be family friendly; there will be a magic show for children as well as cake walk. Activities will be held from noon to midnight and will feature live music.
Main Street Christmas Light Extravaganza in Downtown Macon
Every year, Downtown Macon glows during the holiday season. Hosted this year by Northway Church, Macon will once again be doused in light. The Light Extravaganza will kick off this year on Nov. 29 and will feature live music from MaconPops! and other local artists. The city will light up at 6 p.m. and will stay lit until Jan. 3. There will also be several different events hosted by Northway Church and Downtown Macon.
There is certainly a lot to check out in the next month to get the community ready for the holiday season.
