We are saddened to announce that the 2021 Dahlonega Literary Festival has been cancelled. This decision was made in abundant precaution for the health and safety of all volunteers and attendees. 

In place of our annual festival, the steering committee is working diligently to bring smaller events throughout the year.

Our FIRST EVENT will be September 23, 2020.

After another successful year for the Songwriters' Café, the Dahlonega Literary Festival (DLF) wanted to ensure the music still went on. To assist with that, proceeds from the 2020 Songwriters' Café were donated to the Music Technology Program at Lumpkin County High School. DLF recognizes the significance of songwriting and lyrics as a style of written word. 

Thanks to all of you!

The 2020 Dahlonega Literary Festival was Out of this World!

If you missed it, we missed YOU!

A BIG THANK YOU to all the Sponsors, Authors, Writers, Volunteers and the DLF Steering Committee for all your hard work, time and effort and a SPECIAL THANK YOU to all of you who attended and made this year's Festival such a big success. 

We appreciate all of you.
