The 43rd Annual Athens Orthopedic Clinic Twilight Criterium p/b Michelob Ultra (Twilight), will be held in Downtown Athens, April 20-23, 2023. Our growing event, featuring Saturday, April 22, uniquely falls on Earth Day. This year's event is fresh with a bold global and wellness emphasis while we are intent on this weekend being an opportunity for community building and success for all businesses Downtown.

We’re excited about ALL of the additional activities throughout the weekend of races! Some of the same great hallmarks of Twilight will be taking place: The Kid Zone (Lumpkin/Washington), the Twilight 5K and Gambler Ride, and our Community Expo (Friday through Sunday) of sponsors and other partners of Twilight—to name a few!

So much is NEW at Twilight this year! Have you seen the new Live Wire Main Stage Music Schedule - Friday through Sunday?  The Cine meet and greet reception for VIP wristband-wearers? The Twilight ARTIST MARKET (Friday through Sunday) on College Square?
