Dancing Goats Folkfest 2017

Come on down to North Church Street and the adjoining boardwalk in downtown Ellijay, Georgia on September 30 and October 1, 2017 to enjoy a good old fashioned mountain shindig. The Dancing Goats Folkfest will provide you with a chance to get a glimpse into the heritage and cultural traditions of the North Georgia Mountains. From storytelling to the music of dulcimers and banjos, not to mention the arts and crafts, and good food, there will be something for everyone. Parking, admission, and children’s art activities will be free.

The Gilmer Chamber and several other businesses and organizations have come together to create this festival as a way to promote and preserve the arts that have been handed down for generations. With proceeds from this event, they are hoping to fund a downtown art project for children.
