Fall in North Georgia is one of the most beautiful times of the year!
Not only do residents and visitors get to enjoy gorgeous fall leaves, there are also a number of great family-centered events in North Georgia each fall. Here are some of our favorites!
Gibbs Gardens Monet Waterlily Festival
Located at the beautiful Gibbs Gardens in Ball Ground, Georgia, this fall festival features a French market with handcrafted breads, desserts, crepes, fruits, vegetables, spices, soaps, and more. Arts and crafts vendors showcase and sell work from watercolor painting and pottery, to wood crafts and photography. The festival is held annually in celebration of the garden’s 140 varieties of blooming waterlilies, set in a pond with a Monet-style bridge as the backdrop. On the weekends, festival-goers can enjoy various types of live classical music.
Georgia Apple Festival
Another great fall festival in North Georgia is the well-loved Georgia Apple Festival in Ellijay. Held each October, the festival has been a staple in Gilmer County for more than 45 years! Whether you’re interested in browsing hundreds of arts and craft vendors, or trying some of the state’s best apple-themed foods, this festival is a great choice for the family.
Fall Arts in the Park
If you’re looking for a little smaller but still wonderful festival to enjoy this fall, why not try Fall Arts in the Park, held in Downtown City Park in Blue Ridge, Georgia. This festival features about 100 arts and craft vendors, plenty of food, and even has a kid’s art area. This is a great way to get out and enjoy the fall foliage while enjoying art with the family!
