On April 15, 2017, the Saturday of Easter weekend, head to the charming city of Sautee in the North Georgia mountains for the 3rd Annual Blue Ribbon Biscuits and Bluegrass Festival. Can it possibly get any better than to have hot homemade biscuits with local jams and jellies available all day long while regional bluegrass favorites Elliott Sperin, Good in the Kitchen and The Freight Hoppers provide the tunes? Yes, it can! The gathering is chock-full of old fashioned activities including a luncheon served in the Community Hall at Sautee Nacoochee Center, pickles and pie contests, scavenger hunts for the kids, raffles, local vendors and more.
The Blue Ribbon Biscuits and Bluegrass Festival is free and sponsored by Mt. Yonah Animal Hospital.
Established in 1981, the Sautee Nacoochee Center preserves and fosters an awareness of the heritage, land and community so important to North Georgia. In addition to a robust schedule of performing arts classes and programs, concerts and events, the Sautee Nachoochee Center encompasses the SNC History Museum, the African American Heritage Site, art galleries and the nationally-recognized Folk Pottery Museum of Northeast Georgia.
