ALWAYS THE THIRD FULL WEEKEND IN OCTOBER
Gold Rush Days are held the third weekend in October (the 18th - 20th for 2013), when thousands come to see fall colors peaking and celebrate Dahlonega's 1828 discovery of gold. Over 300 art and craft exhibitors gather around the Public Square and Historic District in support of this annual event, and it is estimated that a crowd of over 200,000 visit over the weekend to join in the fun and excitement! It has been voted one of the Top 20 Events in the southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society.
Gold Rush Days supports scholarships for Lumpkin County students and the Empty Stocking Fund.
