DOWNTOWN ROME TRANSFORMS INTO ONE GIANT STREET FESTIVAL
NOTE: 2020 updates coming - it is still in the planning phase due to COVID-19.
Come fiddle between the rivers in historic downtown Rome with two stages of live entertainment and some of the best bluegrass music in the south! Musicians will also be located at various locations throughout the festival. Pickers are invited to bring a fiddle and join the fun!
Discover fun family activities such as art and craft demonstrations and interactive games. Watch antique, vintage and muscle cars cruise-in to the car show. Pony Rides will be available! Shop downtown store sidewalk sales as well as food and drinks from local restaurants. Downtown Rome transforms into a huge street festival for a full day of fall fun. The best part, thanks to the generous support of downtown businesses and sponsors, entry is FREE!
