The Holly Theater presents concerts in an intimate and nostalgic setting. Welcoming locally grown acts such as the Kurt Thomas Band, Jason Kenny, and The Fiddleheads, there is no doubt that this little hometown theater packs a big punch when staging concerts. With state-of-the-art lighting and sound equipment, the Holly offers the experience and setting of a big city venue right here in Dahlonega. Locals and visitors alike can spend a few hours immersed in fantastic music, and walk out to be welcomed by a sky full of stars.

Every year the Holly hosts a variety of live concerts ranging from the Mountain Music and Medicine show that draws a number of talented local musicians, to wildly popular groups such as the Kurt Thomas Band and Emerald Rose, to tribute shows such as The Return and Johnny Cash Now.
