If you weren’t there, take a look at what you missed … then plan to be there next year.
Dahlonega is home to an outstanding university, mountain roads cherished by motorcyclists, acclaimed theatre, wineries, eateries, the Appalachian Trail, mountain music and a dandy place to buy fudge.
A couple of times a year, Dahlonega gives it all up and throws a party. Such was the weekend of April 21, 2012, when Dahlonega hosted the Bear on the Square Mountain Festival.
The previous 15 Mountain Festivals were great. This year, the music — free for all for the first time — and the calibre of the artwork on display were stellar. Thanks to the smiling, gracious participants, we are able to share a few photographs with you.
Mark your calendars now for Bear on the Square for 2013, scheduled for the weekend of April 20th!

What kind of work would you do for free? Bear on the Square relies on cheerful, helpful volunteers.
