Springtime Fun at the Dahlonega Arts & Wine Festival

Wine Festival - Dahlonega

Dahlonega features the highest concentration of vineyards, wineries, and tasting rooms in the State of Georgia — it’s the perfect place to host the annual arts and wine festival! Set up in the historic square of downtown Dahlonega in Lumpkin County, the Dahlonega Arts & Wine Festival features high-quality arts, local crafts, and fine wines from regional wineries across North Georgia. And live jazz performances in the park add more entertainment to your experience. This springtime cultural event is great for couples, friends, and groups on vacation in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains. 

Arts & Crafts

Walking around the historic downtown square in Dahlonega, you’ll find 70+ artists and crafters showcasing their one-of-a-kind creations. The Dahlonega Arts & Wine Festival is a fundraiser — hosted by the non-profit Chestatee Artists — to benefit local school art programs. Stop at a booth to admire their handiwork and craftsmanship while sipping aromatic wine in the heart of the North Georgia Mountains. And consider taking a piece home to support local kids and add to your growing collection.
