NewTown Macon wins the 2024 Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA) award

Macon Magazine is celebrating NewTown Macon for their the Great American Main Street Award (GAMSA) award!

This prestigious annual award is the only award that recognizes a community’s comprehensive, preservation-based approach to revitalization. In the history of the Main Street program, only about 100 communities across the nation have won this award, making @newtownmacon part of an elite group of winners.

To further celebrate:
Join NewTown Macon this Friday at 10 a.m. on Coleman Hill for a press conference featuring Mayor Lester Miller and DCA Commissioner Nunn, where they’ll speak to Macon’s significant success in its downtown revitalization efforts.

And, Sunday from 5-8 p.m. at Coleman Hill! NewTown Macon and Bragg Jam are teaming up to throw the ultimate Second Sunday to celebrate our new title as a Great American Main Street!

Second Sunday is a FREE concert with the greatest view of Macon on Coleman Hill. With a stunning view of downtown Macon, Coleman Hill is the perfect setting for this family-friendly concert. Enjoy live music by Blak Pearl, FREE face painting by Joann, balloon art by Susana Bixler, games, and Court of Miracles will be there with a fun zone full of kids’ activities, flow arts, a movement workshop, handheld instruments, and live painting.
