DeKalb is home to year-round festivals. We have something for everyone.
It all starts in March
Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area
Are you ready to rock?
During the fast-paced Monadnock Madness Triple Hike, you’ll conquer the peaks of Stone, Arabia, and Panola Mountains in one unforgettable day. Along the way, expert guides will lead you to discover endangered plants, mountaintop views, and local heritage. You’ll even earn a special souvenir that you can wear as a badge of honor. As a sweet ending to every Triple Hike, we’ll all roast marshmallows by a fire for s’mores!
Monadnock Madness is made possible by partners at the Stone Mountain Memorial Association, the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve, Panola Mountain State Park and Friends of Panola Mountain State Park.
The Old Town Tucker Merchants Association and The Local No. 7 will host the seventh annual Tucker Chili Cook-Off on March 10, 2018. The event runs from 1:00 - 5:00 PM with all of the festivities taking place on Main Street in Tucker, Georgia. Enjoy live music and great food all day long.
This is a great opportunity for people of all ages to celebrate the newly renovated downtown area and check out some of the new businesses. Your $5 entry gets you access to taste all the chili prepared by event contestants and gives you one vote to help award the coveted People’s Choice prize.
