Each October, the nine-day Georgia Mountain Fall Festival features exciting musical performances, educational demonstrations, a flower show and the ever-popular Georgia's Official State Fiddlers' Convention.

During the convention, performers of all ages compete in various musical categories such as senior fiddler, junior fiddler, bluegrass band, finger-style guitar, flat pick guitar, banjo and mandolin. After initial competitions, a winner will be declared in each category. Then, the winner from both the junior and senior groups will complete in a "Fiddle Off," where that winner will be declared the "Georgia Mountain Fiddle King."

Enjoy music daily in The Anderson Music Hall and visit the flower show, arts and crafts displays, and the exhibit hall. Demonstrations will take you back to the "old ways" as local folks show how moonshine was made, quilting, soap and hominy making, blacksmithing and more. The Pioneer Village is a replica of an era gone by.
