In a state that tends to celebrate the coming of autumn far more than the arrival spring, the Macon Cherry Blossom Festival is a welcome sign that spring is arriving in Georgia. In addition to the beautiful cherry blossoms that arrive in early to mid-March throughout Macon, the festival brings artisans both local and from the far sides of country.

Lined in white tents through Macon’s downtown streets, this festival is one of the larger ones in Georgia as far as sheer number of vendors.

Additionally, one of my favorite summertime events, the classic car show, complete with beach boy music and hot rods occurs during the main day of the festival.

The Festival also has a kids area with inflatables throughout.

For me, this is one of the more exciting festivals in Georgia.  With lots of entertainment continuing on into the night, and its location on downtown Macon, the festival feels more like a block party with roasted corn and art than some of the more standard mountain fairs I tend to frequent.
