A Message from the President
Spring is in the air. The days are getting longer and trees are starting to bloom. It is officially the  most festive time of the year in our beloved city. In just a few days, the  36th Annual International Cherry Blossom Festival  will kick off, bringing thousands of tourists to town. This year's event will be held March 16-25 and includes traditional favorites as well as exciting new events; from concerts to carnival rides, parades to food trucks, and everything in between, there is something for everyone.
 
In addition to all the family-friendly fun the festival offers, this is also a huge economic driver for our community. Each year, the festival and its visitors have an economic impact of over $6 million on our local economy. Visitors stay in our hotels, gas up at our stations, eat in our restaurants and shop in our stores. This festival and the numerous others that Macon hosts throughout the year, support our businesses. We ask our business community and individual citizens to take part in all that this great city has to offer! Now is the perfect time to be a tourist in your own hometown.
