Artists have until March 1st to submit ideas. Visit Macon will display the guitars in their window. People will vote on the guitars in May.

There will also be an online auction for the guitars. Proceeds will go towards the Main Street Christmas Light Show Extravaganza.

Visit Macon Director of Tourism Steven Fulbright says, “It brings in people from all over Central Georgia. Walking downtown this past winter you saw people from all over the state of Georgia. It was really nice to see that. It brings families together. It’s just a wonderful way to promote our community.”

First, second, and third place guitar art winners will win cash prizes.
