Welcome to the Forsythia Festival
FORSYTHIA FESTIVAL COUNTDOWN
3/12/20 Update: Forsythia Festival Suspended
After careful consideration and much discussion with local leaders, the 2020 Forsythia Festival is suspended until further notice. This decision comes after Forsyth Mayor Eric Wilson formally recommended the cancelation of the Festival.
“It is my recommendation that the Forsythia Festival not be held this weekend due to concerns for the spread of COVID-19. This recommendation comes after consulting with health officials and local officials throughout the day today. The Forsythia Festival is a much-anticipated event for many including me and it is not a decision that I make lightly.” Eric S. Wilson, Mayor – City of Forsyth
Earlier today, Governor Brian Kemp encouraged people to follow the recommendations of their local governments. He also advised people to follow the CDC guidelines and to avoid massive crowds.
This was not an easy decision, but the safety and well-being of our community is our highest priority. We thank you for your understanding and support. We will continue to monitor the situation in the coming weeks and will make a decision about whether we can hold the Festival later this year.
Kick off spring with the Forsythia Festival, held annually the second weekend in March, at downtown Forsyth, Georgia. This free, family-fun event features a two-day arts-and-crafts show, children’s fair, a 5K run, sporting tournaments, live entertainment, and much more! Join us Saturday night for FaithFest, our faith-based singing competition celebrating music, faith, and our community. Celebrate the whole week with community events and a special, themed party.
