20 Reasons to Attend the 20th Annual Bear on the Square Mountain Festival

Come join us in Downtown Dahlonega for the 20th annual celebration of Southern Appalachian music, art and folklore at Bear on the Square Mountain Festival on April 16-17. This lively festival, spawned from the local legend of a bear cub that took refuge in the sycamore tree in front of Brad Walker’s Pottery, is a favorite for visitors and locals alike. There is no other festival quite like Bear on the Square, and we hope these 20 reasons to attend will show you why.
