Deep Roots Festival

A long-time favorite of locals, tourists and college students alike since 2000, Deep Roots  is a lively cultural arts and music festival that brings historic downtown Milledgeville to life like nothing else. Boasting a 17,000+ attendance in 2016, it beckons travelers from all over with an antique car show, live entertainment ranging from bluegrass to rock-and-roll, artist market, and a “LittleRoots KidZone.” A day at the festival will allow you to see talent, art and products from national, regional and local individuals and businesses. For the third year, this year’s festival will host the Georgia Barbecue Association’s State Championship.

Festivities kick-off at 10 a.m. and the music pumps until midnight. Downtown streets are closed, allowing festival goers to dine in their favorite establishments or try a pop-up vendor, shop the festival arts or our merchants, and dance in the street.

Admission to the festival is an all-day pass, festival attendees may come and go throughout the day.

Pre-sale tickets will be available at the Main Street office beginning Monday, October 2nd
inside the Economic Development Center at 105 E. Hancock Street
Hours of Operation: M-F, 8am-4:55pm.

Monroe Crossing: An Evening of Bluegrass

Wednesday, January 11, 2017,  7:30pm
Monroe Crossing: An Evening of Bluegrass Music
Allen’s Market, 101 W. McIntosh Street

Monroe Crossing will present a bluegrass concert in the historic Allen’s Market building in downtown Milledgeville. Named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music,” the band entertains audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. The group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals, frequently for non-bluegrass audiences – and people often comment that they’d never really liked bluegrass music until they attended a Monroe Crossing concert.

Seating is limited. Full event details are on the Allied Arts website. Call 478-452-3950 for more information or purchase tickets online today.
