Ordinarily, the Dahlonega Science Festival is held in many different venues all around Downtown Dahlonega. However, due to COVID concerns this year, we will be hosting an entirely virtual festival in 2021.
REGISTER HERE for all 2021 festival activities. Zoom links will be sent via email on the festival weekend.
Our panel presentations, speakers, kid's activities, planetarium shows, and more will all be available online via Zoom and Facebook Live! Register today to gain access to these events.
Be sure to stop by one of our pickup locations on Friday, March 5th to get your Lab in a Bag (LAB) kit! We'll be stationed at the UNG Dahlonega, Gainesville, and Cumming campuses for the LAB kit pickup!
We're getting oh so close to this year's event; check out our plans thus far, and keep an eye out for more information coming soon!
