The Dahlonega Science Festival is proud to recognize our partners for our first event.  These organizations and businesses have stepped up to help by providing facilities, materials or financial support to get this event off the ground!  We look forward to our growing partnership with these businesses and organizations as we look ahead to a growing festival in coming years!



Woodmen Life Chapter #1374: Founded in 1890 in Omaha, NE, WoodmenLife is proud to be standing strong after more than 125 years of financial growth. In addition to providing life insurance and retirement products, we give back to our members and their communities through local chapters, while also providing opportunities for service and leadership. Through WoodmenLife, our members work with trusted advisors to prepare for the future, make lifelong friends and make a difference … and pass these traditions down through generations.  We are especially grateful to Woodmen Life for providing not only the space for our children's activities, but a contribution to help with materials and supplies as well.  For information about Woodmen Life, contact Brandon Branson, Phone: 706-525-9047 Cell: 706-525-9047 or email:  BFBranson@woodmen.org 


Bourbon Street Grille is situated on the beautiful Dahlonega square. Located in the historic Hall House building, Bourbon Street Grill boasts full bars and dining areas on two unique floors, which begs the question, “Top or bottom?”. The “top” features an intimate dining room and balcony overlooking the picturesque town square,while the “bottom” has a festive pub atmosphere with flat-screen televisions inside and a pet-friendly deck outside. Their diverse menu includes Cajun-inspired favorites.  Bourbon Street Grille has hosted the Dahlonega Science Cafe since its inception in May, 2016, and we are proud to have them host our guest author talks for our first festival.

The Half Moon Saloon, upstairs at the Crimson Moon, is the site of all our panels.  We are grateful that the Half Moon Saloon has agreed to provide the space.  So come enjoy some coffee and interact with our scientists during our panel discussions.


The Dahlonega Literary Festival has been our partner since the very beginning of planning for the Dahlonega Science Festival.  They have graciously shared spaces with us, provided support and guidance, and shared the weekend. Now in its 14th year, the Dahlonega Literary Festival always provided the community with access to exceptional authors. Be sure to spend some time at their events.  The combined weekend festivals mean twice as much to do!  


The North Forsyth High School Science Ambassadors have generously provided support for our Hands-On Family Science Activities on Saturday Morning at the Woodmen Life building.
