ALICE WALKER TOURS

When buying your tickets, you will be asked whether you would like to take one of the Alice Walker tours, which will be conducted on air-conditioned Putnam County school buses equipped with PA systems. Each tour will last approximately 2 hours, including loading and unloading in the Plaza Arts Center parking lot.

Guests will be treated to a curated tour with stops at locations historically relevant to Alice Walker and to Eatonton-Putnam County.

Seating is limited so you will need to reserve your spot by selecting a tour time. The morning tours begin loading at 10 a.m. and the afternoon tours will begin at 3:45. If you do not wish to take a bus tour, select No Tour on the ticketing site. Accessible seating is available.
