Welcome to Cochran and Bleckley County, where Southern hospitality and charm is our way of life. It will appeal to the young, and the young at heart. We are home to Middle Georgia State University's Cochran Campus. For over ten years Biking Bleckley, held the last Saturday in February, has served well to allow our biking visitors a leisurely tour of our country roads. Dykes landing offers the outdoor enthusiast the opportunity to camp, canoe, and fish. Our Country Fest event, the third weekend in October, brings thousands to enjoy arts and crafts, entertainment, great food, and a street dance. The annual Lighted Christmas Parade held the first Friday of December at 7:00 PM packs the street with spectators as they enjoy the floats, bands, local and state dignitaries, and of course Santa. Highway 26 connects us to Middle Georgia's most traveled Interstates I-16 and I-75. Come visit our community and be romanced by our charmed life.
