Dahlonega, Georgia
Southern Gateway to the Appalachian Trail

Come join us in Dahlonega as we celebrate Dahlonega's designation as an AT Trail Community and our connection with the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. Trail Fest, a project of Yahoola Outdoors (Yahoola Trails Conservancy), is a festival of outdoor enthusiasts revolving around all aspects of non-motorized recreation: hiking, backpacking, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding, mountain biking, orienteeering, and more! The festival features authors, speakers, workshops, music, food, vendors, and non-profit groups.

All vendors, manufacturer's reps, and non-profit and informational groups interested in a booth, contact for an application.
