Not all the great festivals happen in Georgia’s big cities. Smaller, quieter towns throughout the state of Georgia offer festivals that are great fun for the whole family.
Dahlonega Trail Fest, Dahlonega (Sept. 9-11, 2016)
Explore the gateway to the Southern start of the Appalachian Trail with a weekend full of festivities for your whole family at Dahlonega Trail Fest. Based in the easily explored North Georgia town of Dahlonega, the festival features a schedule filled with music, films, presentations and (of course) hiking opportunities. There will also be a wine and beer garden, walking tours of the town, 5K and 10K runs, canoe and kayak trips, and chances to take a shuttle to Springer Mountain.
