Friday Night Auction

The Friday Night Country Auction and Dinner Returns!

Bear on the Square’s 25th Anniversary celebration begins on Friday, April 14, in the MainStage Tent with the Live Auction & Dinner.

This year, you will be able to bid on a wonderful selection of items curated from our area artists and businesses and our own Artist Marketplace vendors. You can browse items here or at the button below and note that we are uploading new items all the way up to the Auction, so check back regularly!

Join us on Friday, April 14.

  • Doors open and Silent Auction begins at 5:00 PM. Live Auction begins at 7:00 PM with Auctioneer Sam Williamson.
  • Admission is $5 and includes a catered dinner.
  • Wine, beer, and meade from Etowah Meadery and Dahlonega Brewery will be available for purchase.
  • Enjoy the music of the Licklog String Band!

The Auction contributes a large portion of the budget we use to keep the festival free to attend, and to bring in the best up-and-coming bands from around the nation as well as our amazing local talent. So bid generously, bid often, and help us make the 2023 Bear on the Square a spectacular 25th Anniversary celebration!

Thank you for making our 25th anniversary a success!
