Santa Has Arrived in Dahlonega!

Dress up the children and bring your camera, parents! Santa will be in Downtown Dahlonega every weekend through December 20th. Set against the backdrop of Dahlonega’s incredible, beautifully decorated 30-foot Christmas tree, you will be able to capture precious moments with Santa, Mrs. Claus, and one of Santa’s trusty elves!

Santa will be spreading Christmas cheer on the Visitors Center Plaza Saturdays from 12 pm to 6 pm and Sundays from 1 pm to 5 pm. You can also spot Santa and his crew in his sleigh during the Old Fashioned Christmas Parade, being held downtown on December 5th at 4pm.

Has your child been extra good this year? Be sure they bring their letter telling Santa all about it to the Visitors Center to be placed in our special mailbox for delivery to the North Pole! Forgot your letter at home? Don’t fret; we have blank letters at the Visitors Center counter! Just fill it out and drop the letter in the bright red mailbox next to the Christmas tree inside.

If you are visiting from out of town, be sure to sign our electronic guest book for a chance to win our $300 value gift basket, featuring goodies from local Dahlonega and Lumpkin County establishments.

Share your photos with us by using the hashtag #DahlonegaChristmas for a chance to be featured on our social media pages! Follow us on Instagram and Twitter at @VisitDahlonega and on Facebook at And for a full rundown of holiday events, including Old Fashioned Christmas, visit
