Two-Wheeled Action Coming to Dahlonega in September

Get your bicycle ready because Dahlonega temperatures have cooled and University of North Georgia students are back – two sure signs that September and early autumn is nearly upon us. September in Dahlonega means that the Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty Bicycle Ride -- one of the premier bicycle rides in the Southeast, maybe even in the nation – is right around the corner.

Humans of Dahlonega … Bear on the Square Founder, Glenda Pender

Back in 1996, a bear came waltzing through the Historic Public Square in downtown Dahlonega with her two cubs. Everyone on the square dropped their responsibilities to come and see. The cooks at Crimson Moon dropped their spoons from making a boiling pot of soup. The massage therapists left their patients on the tables. All to come and see this family of bears. One of the cubs climbed up the now-famous tree in front of Brad Walker's pottery studio, and we eventually had people come out and move the three bears to safety away from the town. This was the biggest ordeal Dahlonega had seen in a while!

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.
