Come stay with us and attend The Dahlonega First Friday Night Free Concert on June 6 with 2 great bands!
Concert starts at 6:30 PM with Yahoola & BlueBilly Grit.
Opening the show will be Dahlonega’s Yahoola. Yahoola is widely known for their super harmony singing and their 10 year reputation for playing some of the best bluegrass in North Georgia.
From the side porch of an old gristmill to the main stage of The Telluride Bluegrass Festival, BlueBilly Grit has quickly become a force in Bluegrass and Americana. Their modern style, which blends these two genres of music, has a way of appealing to the newer generation of the grassroots movement and to those that have a love for the more traditional sound.

March 8 & 9, 2014 — The Dahlonega Literary Festival is an annual celebration of books that takes place in March at various venues around the Historic Square of Downtown Dahlonega, GA. The festival continues to grow and become more delightful as the years go on.

Each year the Dahlonega Literary Festival presents an array of invited authors representing a variety of genres. In addition, a number of regional authors (ranging from local to other areas of the Southeast) have the opportunity to purchase a table to both interact with festival attendees and sell their books. Fans have the opportunity to hear various panel discussions from groups of authors, attend book signings, have lunch with their favorite author, and much more!
Past authors include Diana Gabaldon, Terry Kay, Joshilyn Jackson, Cherie Priest, Karen White, Mark Braught, Ann Hite, Kimberly Brock, and A.J. Hartley.
