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 hand crafted creations. Inside the Wine Garden, wine lovers will enjoy a wide variety of wine from local and regional wineries. The Wine Garden is open 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, Montaluce Winery, and Three Sisters Vineyards & Winery. Wine tasters will receive a commemorative wine glass with their tickets for 16 tastings for $30, which can be shared with a companion. Wine can also be ordered by the glass for $8.00 or by the bottle based on winery prices. The Wine Garden opens at 11 am on Saturday and on Sunday at 12:30 pm. 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 Little Big Band Atlanta, led by the multi-talents of Rick Harris. Brookwood Split will also perform and has also been a big hit at our festivals, along with many exceptional singers and musicians. These free performances begin at noon and continue during festival hours. Visit the Dahlonega Arts & Wine Festival Facebook page and come back often to see postings of our sponsors, wineries in the Wine Garden, and the musical groups who will be performing. The Holly Theatre will also add to this cultural weekend by presenting Mamma Mia, a musical smash hit that tells the hilarious story of a young girl?s search for the identity of her birth father. The setting for this comedy takes place on a Greek island paradise. Tickets can be obtained for evening performances at 8 pm Friday and Saturday, or Sunday matinee at 2 pm www.hollytheater.com ... read more
