Blue Ridge cabin rentals offer a variety of accommodations, from small river-front homes to luxurious 4-bedroom cabins, which have a spectacular view of the mountains. The highlands host a number of events and festivals, where you can meet local people and acquaint yourself with their way of life. Here are some popular events and festivals.
The Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race
This race is held in spring at the Chattahoochee National Forest. More than a 100 co-ed, 3-member teams take part. The race is a combination of running along steep forest trails, mountain biking and paddling on the Toccoa River. The event is fun for the whole family with live music and great local food available.
Family Fishing Festival
Held at the Chattahoochee National Fish Hatchery yearly in September, this is a great occasion for the entire family to hone their fishing skills. Learn to cast bait, tie flies and catch trout that are in abundance at Rock Creek. You can also see some live demonstrations and educational exhibits.
Mountain Harvest Sale
This farmer’s market is held annually in the 3rd and 4th weeks of October. Organized by the Fannin County Homemaker’s Council, the sale offers you locally made arts and craft. The sale is an ideal opportunity to buy some gifts with a mountain theme.

This rodeo is held every August in the North Georgia Mountains. Organised on the lines of a traditional rodeo, the events include calf roping, saddle and bareback riding, steer wrestling, barrel racing and team roping. Special competitions that test your equestrian skills are also held here.
