About Us

The Dahlonega Literary Festival is an annual celebration of readers, writers, and books. For 18 years, the festival has been celebrated in the heart of Dahlonega, Georgia and organized by an all-volunteer staff who enjoy bringing readers, authors, and the written word together to celebrate a common love of books and literature.

Our Featured Authors are nationally-known and represent a variety of genres. Additionally, Regional Writers (from local to other areas of the Southeast and beyond) are on hand to interact with attendees and sell their books.


The Dahlonega Literary Festival is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization financially supported by donations and grants from individuals, businesses, and other organizations, as a partner of Lumpkin Literacy. To support the Festival, please click on a “Donate” button anywhere on our website.
