Spirits & Spice Festival set for Saturday in downtown Newnan


From Special Reports

It’s time to eat, drink, and get spooky as Halloween fast approaches! 

That’s right, Main Street Newnan is hosting the Spirits & Spice Festival on Saturday, Oct. 23 in downtown Newnan. Event attendees will be able to get their “boos” on by walking the Downtown Spirits Trail and purchasing specialty cocktails at different participating locations, spicing things up by tasting numerous types of chilis at the Chili Cook-Off, and having some skele-fun on the Twisted Trolley Tour ride.

The event is for all ages and takes place from 2-7 p.m. It will feature live music, a craft market, and activities for the kids. The Chili Cook-Off at the festival highlights a fiercely competitive competition between amateurs and local restaurateurs, which includes both meat and vegetarian chili entries. 

This event will require closing of several downtown Newnan streets – Jackson Street (between Madison Street and West Broad Street), West Washington Street/North Court Square (between Brown Street and Greenville Street), and South Court Square (between Jackson Street and Greenville Street). The streets will close early around 11 a.m. and should reopen at approximately  8 p.m.
