The International Cherry Blossom Festival is happening for 10 days.

March 27 - April 5, 2020

The Yoshino cherry trees have been a city staple for many years. Reaching peak bloom for only 10 days, it seems that the blossom leave as quickly as they arrive. Why is Macon home to so many of these amazing trees? It all started in 1949 when Macon native William A. Fickling discovered a unique and unrecognized tree blossoming in his yard. Later discovering it was a Yoshino cherry tree, Fickling and his family freely distributed the tree throughout the city. Nearly 40 years later, Carolyn Crayton, another Macon native, created the Cherry Blossom Festival as a way to celebrate the principles of “love, beauty, and international friendship.” To learn more about the Festival's history, click here.
