Macon Sculpture Walk Party at the 567 Center for Renewal

The Macon Sculpture Walk brings the work of sculpture artists to downtown Macon’s streets. Currently, there are six sculptures downtown but the 567 Center for Renewal will be unveiling an additional three sculptures on Friday, one of which was created by local artist Tameka Phillips. The sculptures are leased for a year by the 567, but then are available for purchase by local businesses, people or organizations that will keep them downtown.

Amerson River Park

With the warming temperatures and the first blossoming of spring, it’s the best time to explore Macon’s natural beauty (before the pollen gets bad, and we all know it will). A walk around Amerson River Park’s 3.5 miles of paved trails that follow the Ocmulgee River is a great way to spend an early Monday evening.

Storytellers Presents: “Cancellations” at Grant’s Lounge  

This month’s storytelling event is on cancellations and how they have shaped your experiences. While most Storyteller events have two featured storytellers, this month doesn’t. So, it will be crowd sourcing from attendees.

Wednesday, March 15 

Third Eye Blind at the Macon City Auditorium 

90’s pop-rock juggernaut Third Eye Blind will play the Macon City Auditorium. According to reviews, the band still puts on a great show. It may just be worth splurging on a babysitter to relive your high school heydays.
