Around Town

Set in the 1930s, this musical tale introduces the singing Sanders family, who perform their traditional and bluegrass gospel songs for the members of the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Mount Pleasant, NC. Pastor Oglethorpe welcomes the family to the church, where their individual stories and beliefs are shared during the concert. The audience serves as the members of the congregation.

The Dahlonega Gold Museum sits right in the middle of our Public Square. While during the festival it's a great place to jam with your friends on the lawn or rest your legs for a few minutes on one of the benches around the museum, it is actually a very interesting place on the inside too. The Georgia State Historic Site houses artifacts from Dahlonega's gold mining history.
