The Arts

Art Walk   (706) 864-3513
   Public Square, Dahlonega, Georgia 30533

Experience Dahlonega's Visual, Performance, and Culinary Arts in May during the Dahlonega Art Trail. Live Artists work around historic Downtown Dahlonega in the heart of the North Georgia Mountains. Stroll around downtown as you enjoy the Art Trail of galleries and shops. Continue walking among the sculpture exhibit on the beautiful campus of the University of North Georgia... all on one relaxing Saturday.

If you are looking for a unique experience on a spring Saturday, take the Dahlonega Art Trail around downtown and see artists doing what they do best, creating art and fine crafts. Chestatee Artists, a local arts organization, and other artists from the region provide demonstrations of a variety of media as artists show their creative talents. The Art Trail is part of a focus on art in Dahlonega during the designated “Art Month,” which also includes the Dahlonega Arts Council’s annual Mountain Flower Art Festival, the third weekend in May.
