MACON CITY AUDITORIUM

Completed in 1925, the Macon City Auditorium is nestled in the historic district of downtown Macon and is, in itself, a historic landmark listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Its monumental assembly hall – circular in plan – is about the size of the Pantheon in Rome and its unique copper dome is reportedly the largest in the world. Adding even more to its splendor and stately architecture is the Doric-style limestone colonnade which surrounds three sides of the building at the balcony level.

On the inside, the Great Hall seats 2,688 total – 1,700 on the main floor and 988 in a cantilevered balcony. Over the stage, a breathtaking mural by Don Carlos Dubois and Wilbur Kurtz depicts Macon’s history from DeSoto’s visit in 1540 to WWI. And the history just doesn’t stop. Hundreds of big name entertainers and thousands of regular folks continue to make their marks here with some of the most successful concerts, events and meetings in the region.

Given the opportunity, we can make your event one for the history books, too!
