Each March, Macon, Georgia becomes a pink, cotton-spun paradise as over 350,000 Yoshino cherry trees bloom in all their glory. Originally a sleepy southern town, Macon has now become a bustling center of beauty and international friendship.
The Macon Georgia Cherry Blossom Festival works to enhance the quality of life, community fellowship, and civic pride of all Macon and Middle Georgia residents through the encouragement, development, and coordination of selected recreational, cultural, and social activities. A secondary purpose of the Festival is to share our quality of life, community fellowship, and civic pride with visitors attracted by the activities of the Festival.
Our overall theme is “Love, Beauty, and International Friendship.” We will conduct, organize, promote, and maintain the Macon, Georgia International Cherry Blossom Festival by continuing as a non-profit organization which will serve to sponsor the Festival as an annual event in Macon, Georgia. The Cherry Blossom Festival Organization also produces and supports other events during the year throughout Macon-Bibb, such as our Veteran’s Day Celebration.
