Friday Night Auction

Friday Night Country Auction and Dinner!

In 2025, Bear on the Square kicks off Friday, April 25, in the MainStage Tent with the Live Auction & Dinner.

Every year, attendees bid on a wonderful selection of items curated from our area artists and businesses and our own Artist Marketplace vendors. 

During the Auction:

  • 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 live music from a favorite local 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 Bear on the Square a success!
