Main Street Newnan will host the Annual Spring Taste of Newnan on Thursday, April 16 from 5-8:30pm. This event gives people an opportunity to sample specialties of the best restaurants and caterers in the area.

Approximately 60 vendors will be set up around the Historic Courthouse Square. North Court, South Court and West Washington will be closed off to allow for vendor booths and walking space.

“Taste of Newnan gets bigger and better every year and has become a tradition for many families,” said Linda Kee, Director of Business Development.

New this year, The Braves Around Town, a mobile fan experience for the Atlanta Braves, will be setting up a speed pitch booth and a Braves t-ball booth in the Kidz Corner.

“Having The Braves Around Town Street Team come to Taste of Newnan is going to be so much fun for kids of all ages! It’s just one more great reason to come out with the family and enjoy a night in Downtown Newnan!” said Main Street Coordinator Ashley Chalker.

Live entertainment will be provided on the square. 92.5 The Bear will be hosting Southern Pride on South Court Square and J93 will be hosting A True Story on North Court Square.

“We have been looking forward to this event since the Fall Taste of Newnan! It truly is so much fun!” said Chalker.

Those planning to attend can purchase their tokens now. R.S. Mann Jewelers, Musicology, Bank of Coweta, 34 Madison, Brothers Ltd., The Wellness Center of Piedmont Newnan Hospital, Costume Shop, Scott’s Bookstore, Hit the Trail, Smart Solutions, Morgan Jewelers and Full Circle Toys and Collectibles will be pre-selling tokens until the day of the event.

“Our sponsors and Main Street members make these family oriented events possible in downtown. A special thanks goes to our sponsors The Preserve at Greison Trail, Food Lion, Newnan Utilities and Coweta EMC,” said Chalker.
