Just like Blue Ridge has “Pickin in the Park”, Gilmer County is host to “Pickin on the Porch” at the Coosawatee General Store in Ellijay! You have your choice of two beautiful mountain towns to come hear some amazing music! You can come to both actually because Blue Ridge’s pickin’ takes place on Thursday nights but Ellijay’s is every 2nd and 4th Saturday from now until October. (Weather permitting) Ellijay begins the festivities at 7pm.
At this famous store, which I wrote about several months back, you will definitely feel as if you have gone back in time! On these Saturday nights you will hear a variety of music from bluegrass to country to rock n’ roll. The store loves to have the firepit going to roast marshmellows and the general store deli will also have a variety of food for sale from bbq, to hot dogs and hamburgers. There is also many arts and craft items for sale from local vendors!
