Events and Festivals

Throughout the year …

McDonough hosts several seasonal events and festivals that provide fun for the whole family!  From geraniums to ghosts — from scenery to Santa, and a Geranium Drop!  It’s all exciting!  Plan to Tour McDonough for family fun throughout the year.

 The festivities begin each Spring with our Annual Geranium Festival, sponsored by the Lions Club of McDonough and a host of other businesses and organizations.  McDonough Hospitality & Tourism is presenting the Geranium Jam — an outdoor concert in Alexander Park in coming again in 2014.

Georgia is hot in July … but the Fourth of July holiday is hotter in McDonough!  We have fireworks, parades, flag waving, patriotic music and ice cream!  

Fall Festivals, Car Shows and Backyard BBQ Contests welcome cooler weather and colorful autumn leaves.  Folks come from all around to pick pumpkins and even get lost rustling in the corn maze.  Experience all that the fall season has to offer right here in McDonough — just south of Atlanta.

At Christmas, we celebrate with a parade, tree lighting ceremony, a visit from                                                                                             Santa Claus and a 5K run called the Jingle Jog!
