The Cherry Blossom Festival allows all to enjoy the beauty of more than 300,000 Yoshino cherry trees in full bloom; the most in the world!   With over 300,000 Yoshino cherry trees, Macon becomes the pinkest city in the world when the trees are in full bloom. With average peak bloom period happening the second week of March and lasting about 10 days, there is plenty to see and do during this beautiful time in Macon. The 2018 International Cherry Blossom Festival is happening March 16 - 25. 

Visitors are sure to make lifelong memories while enjoying $400,000 worth of free entertainment with their $5 gate admission. Children under 10 will continue to receive free entrance. A revamped nightly concert series will feature regional and national cover bands of all your favorite stars and decades.  The hours of the park will be 10 A.M. – 10 P.M. for all 10 days. We are extremely proud to announce that the Festival at Central City Park will feature a daily “pay-one-price” special for unlimited midway rides, which will provide lifelong memories at an affordable price, something that sets the Festival apart in the industry.  A fireworks finale will close out the Pinkest Party on Earth at the conclusion of the Festival, at 10 P.M. on March 25th.
