The Dahlonega Arts & Wine Festival, May 18 & 19, 2024 is the perfect event for lovers of art, wine, and jazz. Chestatee Artists will present this exciting event for the 7th year in the historic downtown square and adjacent Hancock Park. The focus is on featuring high quality arts and crafts, fine local and regional wines, and terrific jazz performances to entertain our visitors for this truly cultural event.

Seventy or more carefully selected artists and crafters will display creative products for purchase during the two-day event in downtown Dahlonega. Hours for the festival are 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm. Visitors will be able to select from paintings in oil, acrylics, watercolors and mixed media, as well as creative photography. Quality crafts accepted by the jury committee will include ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, wood items, leather crafts, fused and stained glass, fiber arts, custom knives, and other handcrafted creations. Gourmet specialty foods will also
be featured.

On the Hancock Park Pavilion Stage, amazing jazz performers will entertain festival goers who are in the wine venue or in Hancock Park in their own lawn chairs. Musical groups will feature great jazz, blues, salsa and many other genres to keep your “fingers snapping.” Performers from the region and Atlanta will rock the festival with groups like Brookwood Split. They have been a big hit at our festivals, along with many exceptional singers and musicians. These free performances begin at 1 pm and continue during festival hours.

Inside the Wine & Beer Garden, wine lovers will enjoy a wide variety of wine from local and regional wineries. The Wine Garden is located next to Hancock Park so folks can enjoy their wine in the park and get closer to the music. Participating wineries in the past have included Kaya Vineyard & Winery, Etowah Meadery, Habersham Winery & Vineyards, Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery, and Montaluce Winery. Wine tasters will receive a commemorative festival wine glass with their tickets for tastings. Wine can also be ordered by the glass or by the bottle based on winery prices. Craft beer enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to enjoy several craft beers from Dahlonega Brewery. The Wine Garden opens at 11 am on Saturday and on Sunday at 12:30 pm.
