Feed the Bear Donations

Bear on the Square is looking for your help to Feed the Bear! All those who love our festival and come back year after year are invited to help us bring great free music, free workshops, and a free festival for two days in April. Please consider donating at the button below. Thank you so much for your support!

Make your tax-deductible donation now!

You can also mail your check with name, mailing and email addresses, and phone number to: Feed the Bear, P.O. Box 1015, Dahlonega, GA 30533. If you have a question, please email info@bearonthesquare.org. The Bear on the Square Mountain Festival Inc. is a 501C(3) corporation, with the purpose of preserving and showcasing the authentic culture of the Georgia mountains and the Southern Appalachian region.

To support this celebration of Southern Appalachian music, traditional craft and folkways, we encourage you to “Feed the Bear.” And because Bear on the Square is a non-profit organization — with all proceeds going back into presenting the yearly festival and supporting efforts to maintain awareness of our regional culture — all of the donation is tax deductible.

It costs a significant amount to stage a major event like Bear on the Square, including providing facilities, paying the featured performers, printing promotional materials, etc. The majority of the work and expenses depend on a large group of volunteers, our treasured group of sponsors, and you! Thank you!
