Mountain music musicians congregate around the Dahlonega Gold Museum State Historic Site every Saturday afternoon for Appalachian Jam sessions. The Appalachian Jam gives traditional mountain music players the chance to get together and celebrate the kind of music that has been performed in the Appalachian Mountains for generations. Musicians bring their instruments and gather on the historic Public Square to jam. Everyone else should come on down and listen or dance. Everyone is invited to attend. Bring an instrument to participate or just bring yourself to listen and enjoy.
The festival is known for live bluegrass mountain music, jam sessions, storytelling, live and silent auctions, and a dinner to kick things off on Friday, the 20th.
Bear on the Square has been featured in Explore Georgia’s “10 Signature Georgia Music Festivals to Experience this Spring.”
