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.

Celebrate the New Year in Dahlonega!

First First Night?

Not quite. Actually Dahlonega’s very first (and presumably annual) First Night celebration will take place this year on the last night before the first day of the New Year. First Nights around the country have always been called that so we’ll have to go with it.

A Very Special Interview – Meet the Dahlonega Elf!

A Very Special Interview – Meet the Dahlonega Elf!

Okay, our first – and most important -- question ... Do you believe in Santa Claus?

Do I believe? Of course I believe. I sit right next to him on the sleigh each Christmas Eve. Plus he signs my paycheck!

What’s it like to ride on a sleigh drawn by all those reindeer?

It’s exhilarating – a great power takeoff – it’s like being launched by a rocket, then the ride settles down and it’s incredibly smooth. The reindeer tend to pull a bit to the right, but that’s just so we can get around the whole world dropping off presents for good little girls and boys well before sunrise.
