It’s that time of year again when the streets are filled with local artisans and the air is filled with the sounds of revving engines. It can only mean that the annual Mountain Moonshine Festival is back in its 52nd year this weekend. More than 300 vendors have signed up to line the streets of downtown Dawsonville for this year’s festival, and two stages will feature local talent throughout Saturday and Sunday. The Castleberry Stage, located at Grace Presbyterian Church, will feature the Tribes of Judah, South Rock, Highridge and Cure My Enemy, as well as local singers and musicians from north Georgia. The Finish Line stage, in the grassy area adjacent to the Pool Room, will feature performances from local musicians as well as the Dahlonega Gymnastics Hugs Team.
