Dancing Goats FolkFest

518 River Street
Ellijay, GA 30540


Ellijay is a chance to celebrate and preserve the cultural traditions of North Georgia.​

Self-taught artists new and known will showcase true folk art - the first-born art of Appalachia. Alongside all the “pretties,” old-time music and storytelling will help to bring our history and traditions to life.​

Dancing Goats FolkFest will pay homage the old Saturday-go-to-town days and have the atmosphere of a mountain shindig. The celebration will be located in the River Street Parking Lot, North Church Street and the adjoining boardwalk, one of the little mountain town’s newest gathering places.  You might hear dulcimers on one end of the street and a banjo on the other end. Look for paintings, pottery, whirligigs, art cars, good food.
