Christmas in Dahlonega, GA

Dahlonega Christmas

Named one of the “10 Prettiest Christmas Towns in America”!

Dahlonega’s Old Fashioned Christmas is a month-long celebration held from the end of November through December 31st and is set in motion with the Lighting of the Square. A real home-town parade officially bringing Santa to town occurs in mid-December.

Plenty of other festive holiday events continue almost daily throughout December until after New Year’s with caroling, entertainment, wine sampling and live theater Christmas events.

Old Fashioned Christmas is organized by the Dahlonega Downtown Business Association with support from the City of Dahlonega and Discover Dahlonega Tourism.
