Bear on the Square Festival
The annual Bear on the Square Mountain Festival will be an incredible weekend of music and art held around the Historic Public Square in Dahlonega, Ga.
Old time and bluegrass music will fill the downtown square and nearby Hancock Park. The festival opens on Friday as the musicians for the street jams start gathering around the Historic Public Square around noon. There will be on-stage performances on Saturday and Sunday at the MainStage Tent in Hancock Park by local, regional, and national musicians.
Extensive music workshops, the Sunday morning Gospel Jam, a street dance, the Live Country Auction on Friday evening, family activities, and of course, food, complete the offerings during the festival.
