Carnegie Little Free Library

Built exactly like the original Carnegie Library in Rome, this mini library is designed for people to give a book and take a book, encouraging the community to read and donate books, sharing their favorites with others. It’s always worth checking out when walking in downtown Rome.

Free Art Fridays

Every Friday, a different artist around Rome will drop off a piece of art and give clues on social media where you can find it. It’s a fun way to get out with the kids and also get a free piece of cool art!

Downtown Rome First Saturdays – May – October

Instead of our First Fridays and Block Parties from years past, Rome has deciding to try and combine them for a one of a kind experience that involves all of downtown! With much of the area closed down for a festival featuring live music, food, shopping and art. Bring the whole family and have a blast!

Rome Shakespeare Festival

An outdoor performance unlike any other in Georgia! The Rome Shakespeare Festival will present Romeo & Juliet and Twelfth Night on alternating evenings during the festival week, May 30-June 4, 2017. This fun outdoor event is sure to entertain the entire family!
