The fact that Native Americans were here before America became America says plenty about their historical significance. Their contribution, culture and stories are all rightfully celebrated at the Ocmulgee Indigenous Celebration held every September. Music, arts, crafts, booths and games are all part of this very entertaining and educational festival.

The arrival of Christmas brings with it many traditions. Trimming the tree, singing carols, buying presents and attending parties are all part of the fun. But another longstanding tradition at the end of the year is to attend the performance of The Nutcracker. This breathtaking presentation combines Tchaikovsky's magical score with stunning scenery and a graceful ballet. Make sure to get your tickets early, as this performance regularly sells out.
