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 with their festival pass bracelet.

Pre-sale tickets will be available at the Main Street office [date TBA]
inside the Economic Development Center at 105 E. Hancock Street
