In search of southern hospitality at its best?
No need to look any further … you’ve found it!
With special festivals and events held throughout the year, and several unique permanent attractions, we feel sure that you will find something appealing to all ages and backgrounds.
If you think the only place to visit in Georgia is Atlanta, I promise you are in for a surprise! Do come and sit for a spell and see why we are referred to as the “City of Southern Living”. Whether you are here researching your roots at the Ellen Payne Odom Genealogy Library, shopping for specialty and antique items in our beautifully preserved downtown area, or taking in a nationally-renowned art exhibition at the Colquitt County Arts Center, you will find something unique about Moultrie. While here, you may choose to hunt on any of our many hunting preserves and plantations, watch a national diving competition at the Moose Moss Aquatic Center, or spend a relaxing evening at one of our beautiful Bed & Breakfast establishments.
If visiting in the Spring, look for our Calico Arts and Crafts Festival, Blue/Gray Heritage Weekend & Battle Re- enactments, Automotive Swap Meet and Car Corral, or Festival on the Square to keep your days occupied. When the weather gets a little nippier, look to be entertained with America’s Premier Farm Show, the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition, held every year in October. This international farm show presents the latest in ag-related technology and draws a 200,000+ crowd each year. You can also catch our Fall Automotive Swap Meet and Holiday Calico Arts Festival in November. Whatever time of year, Moultrie offers a mild climate suitable for golfing, fishing, or any other outdoor event.
You most certainly would not want to miss our Christmas festivities in Downtown Moultrie. Imagine strolling around or riding in a horse-drawn carriage downtown under a magical cascade of lights streaming down from the cupola of our courthouse … Sounds of carolers echoing their Christmas melodies … The smell of hot chocolate wafting through the air … The kids will love our award-winning nighttime lighted Christmas parade and the lighting of the Courthouse Christmas tree.
Maybe this gives you a picture of the warmth and graciousness of our community and what experiences we have to offer to our visitors. Drop by anytime – we’re always open.
