Over half a century and still going strong: Locals share early Mountain Moonshine Festival memories
In the early 1960s, Dawson County local Fred Goswick set up a table selling his handmade wood carvings off of the Dawsonville square. Each year, his friends and neighbors gradually joined him with tables selling their own wares, and bit by bit the annual Fall Festival was born. Over the years the festival would evolve, growing more and more until it would eventually become the festival everyone knows today: the Mountain Moonshine Festival.
