The 15th annual Bear on the Square Mountain Festival will be an entertaining and lively weekend of music and art held in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains. Pre-festival events will take place on Friday, April 15, with the first of the jamming sessions on Dahlonega’s Historic Public Square, as well as Master Classes in the afternoon, and the Live Country Auction that night.
On Saturday and Sunday, April 16-17, there will be on-stage performances by local, regional, and national musicians throughout the day in the Main Stage Tent at Hancock Park. The juried Artist Marketplace on Saturday and Sunday features traditional mountain crafts and will also have a Country Store. More jamming on the square and music workshops on Saturday and Sunday, a Sunday morning Gospel Jam led by Glenda Pender, a Saturday evening old-time Mountain Dance and food complete the offerings.
