The Dahlonega Literary Festival is an annual celebration of books. The next festival will take place March 1-2, 2019. Situated in Historic Downtown Dahlonega, the Festival continues to grow and become more and more entertaining as the years go on. We promise it will delight anyone who is a lover of books and reading. All Festival events are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.
Each year the Festival presents a slate of invited authors (Featured Authors) representing a variety of genres sharing their ideas and experiences in various programs. In addition, a number of regional authors (Regional Writers ranging from local to other areas of the Southeast) have the opportunity to both interact with Festival attendees and sell their books.
Under the auspices of The Lumpkin Literacy Coalition, The Dahlonega Literary Festival is 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and is financially supported by donations and grants from individuals, businesses, the Georgia Humanities, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Economic Development, and the Georgia Council for the Arts, through funding from the Georgia General Assembly.
The Dahlonega Literary Festival is organized by an all volunteer staff who enjoy organizing this Festival to bring readers, authors, and writers together to share an enjoyable weekend of celebration of our shared love of books and literature.
