GREENSBORO, Ga. — The City of Greensboro and the Greensboro Main Street Program have made the tough decision to cancel the 2020 Southland Jubilee that was set to happen on April 18.
“After closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak and speaking with the City of Greensboro's officials, we have decided to cancel this year's Southland Jubilee festival,” said Ivy Smith, Main Street program assistant and event coordinator. “This decision was not made lightly, but we feel that it is necessary in order to keep the staff, volunteers, and our community safe.”
Although the 2020 Southland Jubilee is canceled, the Jubilee staff is still making preparations for the 2021 Southland Jubilee. Save the date for our favorite Spring Festival on April 17, 2021!

A closed door does not mean a closed business. Many of the businesses have transitioned into online shopping and curbside pick-up only. Many of the downtown businesses also offer gift cards that you can buy now and use later once it is safe to gather again.
