Tour of Progress

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Join us on October 14, 2020 to experience the progress downtown Macon has made over the last year.

Join us on Wednesday, October 14 from 4pm to 7pm for a behind-the-scenes tour of downtown Macon’s transformative development. NewTown Macon’s Tour of Progress, presented by Cadence Bank, provides a sneak peek of projects underway and a look into what programs fuel our vibrant downtown. This event is family-friendly and FREE!

This year, tours will be a little different to prioritize the health and safety of participants. Tours will be self-guided and begin and end at Fall Line Brewing Co., downtown Macon’s newest brewery.

Beginning at 4pm, tour-goers can pick up a Report of Progress and a tour map from Fall Line Brewing Co. at 567 Plum Street. Decals with QR codes will be placed at tour stops. Scan the codes with your smartphone at each tour stop and learn more about the exciting work underway in downtown Macon! Volunteers will be placed along the tour route to help participants move in the right direction and to answer questions.

Tour-goers should return to Fall Line Brewing Co. by 6:45pm to enjoy locally crafted brews and light refreshments during our socially distant Partners in Progress Awards Reception. The Partner in Progress Awards Ceremony will take place outdoors in Fall Line Brewing Co.’s new beer garden at 7pm.

Per local mandate, masks and social distancing are required at all times when participating in this year’s Tour of Progress and Partners in Progress Awards ceremony, except when actively eating and drinking.
