Union Point’s Birthday Party – Celebrating 120 years!

March 23 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

On Saturday, March 23, 2024, the City of Union Point, GA, is celebrating its 120th birthday in conjunction with the 13th Annual Firefly Trail Ticket to Ride event. It will be an exciting day for Greene County residents and visitors to enjoy the city’s past, present and future, from the completion of the Firefly Trail between Union Point and Woodville to revitalization efforts for the historic Union Theatre. The event will showcase local artists and businesses and some of the homesteading practices upon which this rural area is rooted.

Ticket to Ride kicks off at 9am at Union Theater, which will serve as a hub for event registration, refreshments and SAG support for cyclists. This non-competitive ride, hosted by the Union Point Downtown Development Authority and Firefly Trail, Inc., draws cyclists each year from neighboring counties and across the state.

From 10am – 4pm, historic downtown will be buzzing with festivities, with live music from Tim Cadiere and Washboard Road Band and Chris Jon & Scott, food trucks, craft vendors, a bouncy house and train rides for kids as well as tours of the Historic Museum. Starting at 11am, Piedmont Healthcare is offering wellness checks on site, and at 3pm all ages are invited to participate in the 5K race on the Firefly Trail, reviving a town favorite, the “Sock Trot.” DOCK 103.9 will be streaming live, and sports broadcaster Tony Barnhart will be signing copies of his new book, The 19 of Greene. And, of course, there will be plenty of birthday cake at 1pm!
