77th Annual Columbus Spring Pilgrimage

 

Experience the beauty and grandeur that makes Columbus' Spring Pilgrimage an event not to be missed! Mark your calendars for the 77th Annual Columbus Spring Pilgrimage March 30-April 8, 2017. 

 

Columbus Spring Pilgrimage has evolved from a tour of homes in its infancy to today’s delightfully diverse and deeply satisfying 10-day celebration of Southern history, architecture, culture, food and fun. We invite you to join us!

 

 

Named a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event for March 2017, and widely recognized as one of the best and most authentic home tours in the South, this annual event embraces and celebrates all of the town's history as it serves up a feast of irresistible cultural flavors. Tour Columbus' antebellum mansions, homes that are impeccably maintained and as resplendent as ever. Many home tours feature recreated activities of the 1800s, complete with period costumes, which add excitement and authenticity to this historic event. It’s an experience visitors will long remember!
