Main Street Macon actively promotes downtown Macon as a destination with diverse offerings that are inclusive of our entire community. In addition to planning the festivals and events listed below, we also assist businesses and non-profits in hosting events downtown by helping them navigate the permitting process for special events and street closures.

Trick-or-treat in Downtown Macon

Halloween FB Event 2018_hi res

On Halloween (Wednesday, October 31) from 4pm to 7pm, downtown Macon businesses and organizations will open their doors to trick-or-treaters. Families are invited to visit downtown retailers and restaurants in our walkable and safe urban core. Furry friends are welcome too!

Stop by our Halloween Headquarters located in Hollingsworth Park (on Poplar Street in the block between Third Street and MLK Jr. Blvd.) to pick up a map to guide you through our Treat Trail and learn about all downtown Macon has to offer. Also be sure to grab a Halloween Comicfest Scavenger Hunt sponsored by Comics Plus of Macon to help you find all the free comic books scattered in businesses throughout downtown.

As you visit downtown businesses, venture through alleys filled with ghastly games and spooky surprises organized by the Downtown Macon Community Association thanks to a grant from the Downtown Challenge Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia.

This event is free and open to the public. Happy Halloween!
