The Grand Theatre, Department of Tourism, Arts and Culture, City of Fitzgerald has partnered with the FHSCCA to honor the class of 2020. We know that this does not make up for all of the missed senior year moments. However, we hope this helps. A big thanks to the Grand Theatre Technical Director Seth Owens for loading all of the photos of almost 200 students. #fitzlife #fhscca2020 #grandtheatre

Fitzgerald Wild Chicken Festival Vendors and Visitors

In light of the growing concerns around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our 22nd Annual Fitzgerald Wild Chicken Festival scheduled to be held on March 20th and 21st , 2020 in historic downtown Fitzgerald. We are canceling the festival and related events to ensure the health and safety of our community, partner organizations, and volunteers who help us organize this event every year. Individual event organizers will be in contact with vendors, sponsors and participants in the coming days. The Purple Xperience (Prince Tribute) concert will be rescheduled. Please refer to the Grand Concert Promotions page and the Michael Buras page for further information concerning the concert and 5k run.
With the emergency declaration from President Trump declaring the Corona Virus a National Emergency and Governor Kemp declaring a Statewide Public Health Emergency, it has become clear that the 2020 Fitzgerald Wild Chicken Festival must be cancelled. We regret that this drastic step must be taken and we do not take it without fully exploring other options. Public health officials continue to advise that social distancing is the most effective strategy to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We recognize that this cancellation will create challenges for our vendors, but we also recognize our responsibility to protect the health of visitors, vendors, and the general public. We hope you will join us for the Fitzgerald Wild Chicken Festival March 20-21, 2021. We appreciate your support and understanding of this decision and wish you good health in the coming days.

Attention: The Purple Xperince (Prince Tribute) is being postponed!

After much consideration, we are disappointed to pass along the news that The Purple Xperince w/ Marshall Charloff on Saturday, March 21st is being postponed. We are working with Mr Charloff and his team to schedule another date. We will post details on the new date as soon as arrangements are made.

Things you need to know:

- If you purchased a ticket at the chamber or online, that ticket will still be good for the new rescheduled show date.
- If you purchased a ticket from the chamber and want a refund, go by the chamber office Monday after 12:00 pm.
- If you purchased a ticket from freshtix.com and want a refund, send an email to [email protected]. Please include your name (used when purchased ticket), order number (should be on your receipt), and date you purchased the ticket. We will refund the amount back on your card within 3 days.
- Refunds will be given starting Monday, March 16, 2020 until Thursday, April 30, 2020.
- If you have questions, please email [email protected].

Please understand that this is not what Grand Concert Promotions or The Purple Xperince team wanted to do. This show has a lot of moving parts, a lot of people involved, and it wasn’t going to be the best show had we kept the original date.

Stay tuned for details! We hope to see y’all at the rescheduled show!
