Join us on October 14, 2020 to experience the progress downtown Macon has made over the last year.
Partners in Progress Awards
Join us on Wednesday, October 14 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 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 code and learn more about the exciting work underway in downtown Macon!
Tour-goers should return to Fall Line Brewing Co. by 6:45pm to enjoy locally crafted brews and light refreshments.
The Partner in Progress awards reception will take place at Fall Line Brewing Co. following tours and will begin at 7pm.
Each year, NewTown recognizes businesses, organizations, and individuals who have demonstrated exceptional passion and commitment to the revitalization of Downtown Macon. The awards are given in one of eleven categories: The R. Kirby Godsey Leadership, Juanita T. Jordan Community Service, Growing Jobs, Increasing Residents, Creating a Sense of Place, 360 Degrees, Special Recognition, Emerging Partner, Emerging Leader, Downtown Ambassador, and Spirit of Cooperation. Awards may or may not be given in every category.
