Hometown Celebration

Saturday, April 22nd
Hometown Celebration
2-10pm

Milledgeville earned national recognition in 2014 as one of the finest downtowns in America and was awarded as a Great American Main Street City. In honor of our community being awarded as one of the top in the nation, our community partners are hosting a celebration to which all community members and supporters are invited. The Hometown Celebration is always a crowd-pleaser, with this year’s event on a Saturday, having extended hours, and has been moved earlier in the year, when the weather isn’t as hot, for a block party of epic proportions!

On Saturday, April 22nd, from 2-10 pm, the 100 block of West Hancock Street will be OPEN to pedestrians for the 3rd Hometown Celebration! Blind Driver, Scott Little, The Majestics and other live bands will provide music to keep downtown Milledgeville rockin’ and toe-tappin while there will be activities the entire family can enjoy. Local organizations will keep the activities going, downtown businesses will have limited time special sales, and the outdoor dining options will be plentiful. Be on the lookout for other Hometown fun too.

For more information, contact the Main Street Office by phone at 478.414.4014 or email adavis@nullmilledgevillega.us.

Milledgeville Main Street especially thanks our Hometown Celebration event sponsors who’s support keeps this party going for the F-U-N and enjoyment for all!
