Venues

This year, we’ve had to change up the venues where our events will be held. Most of the events will take place at the Continuing Education building at North Georgia College & State University. The building is located on Chestatee Street, next to the Dairy Queen (and across the street from the university’s main campus entrance). Children’s events will take place at the Lumpkin County Library. More details will come as we get closer to November.
