The Bear on the Square Mountain Festival is an incredible weekend of music and art held each spring in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. Old time and blue grass music will fill the Historic Public Square in Dahlonega, Georgia. Jamming goes on day and night around the square while other local, regional, and national musicians take the stage all day Saturday and Sunday.
A juried artist's marketplace features traditional mountain art and crafts. Extensive music workshops, a Sunday morning Gospel Jam, a street dance, a live auction, children's activities, a heritage center demonstrating mountain traditions, and of course, food, complete the offerings, making Bear on the Square the perfect outing for the whole family.
