Suches INDIAN SUMMER festival

What will you think when you visit the Suches Indian Summer Festival?

In one word: Neighborly!

This festival is held the 1st weekend in October.

Indian Summer Festival Sign
“The Valley Above the Clouds” annual festival takes place on the 1st full weekend each October. The great people of Suches boast of its location to be on the grounds of Georgia’s smallest public school, Woody Gap School.

The festival activities are held from 9am to 5pm Saturday and Sunday. They include clogging, live music, demonstrations on archery and hand to hand combat. And of course, there are plenty of pies, cakes, BBQ, funnel cake, boiled peanuts, cotton candy, and homemade preserves to satisfy any chow hound like me.

Woody Gap School
Vendors with handcrafted pottery, quilts, leather, needlework, art, jewelry, photographs, stained glass and more will be there. I saw a rock-climbing wall last year. (Where were those cool things when I was a kid?)

The square dance begins around 8 PM with a small cover charge to pay the live musicians. Proceeds benefit the Woody Gap School and help buy basketballs, uniforms, computers, etc. to provide the mountain youth with state of the art education.
