Bear on the Square Mountain Festival

About Our Festival

Dahlonega's 20th annual celebration of Southern Appalachian music, art and folklore will be held, rain or shine, on Saturday and Sunday, April 16-17 in 2016. Set in a picturesque town in the North Georgia foothills, the festival is a well-attended event which takes place in and around the town's Historic Public Square. As the third weekend in April approaches, keep an eye out for special event announcements to bring attention to the 20th annual festival observance.

Music on the Square

Musicians start gathering Friday afternoon—acoustic jams are everywhere on the city square. Bring a chair, find someone playing your favorite music and join in. We do the old fiddle tunes, country and bluegrass. Bring your guitar, fiddle, mandolin, banjo, bass, lap dulcimer, hammered dulcimer, autoharp, mouth harp, jews harp. By Sunday afternoon, your fingers are tired, vocal cords wore out, leg is sore from tapping your toes - time to go home after the best music jam yet. 'Till next year.
