Georgia Apple Blossom Festival Planning Underway

Spring is one of the best times of the year to visit the North Georgia Mountains. We are excited to announce that we will be hosting the 2nd Annual Georgia Apple Blossom Festival.  After a successful first time event with over 40 vendors and an estimated 2,500 attendees, we look forward to growing in 2015. The festival will be held May 2 & 3, 2015 in East Ellijay on Craig Street parallel to Highway 515. The focus of the festival is LOCAL. Our area has a large variety of jewelers, potters, wood crafters and more. “I highly recommended it to many other crafters and told them it was a wonderful show”, Jewel Willette, local crafter and artist shared after participating in the inaugural event.

This event is great for families offering balloons, face-painting, hula hoops, music and more. Pets also love the Apple Blossom Festival, they can stroll the street or hang out in the grass.  The best part is everyone gets to enjoy the festival for FREE!
