A long-time favorite of locals, tourists and college students alike, Deep Roots is a lively cultural arts and music festival that brings historic downtown Milledgeville to life like nothing else. It beckons travelers from all over with an antique car show, live entertainment ranging from bluegrass to rock-and-roll, artist market, and a “LittleRoots KidZone.” A day at the festival will allow you to see talent, art and products from national, regional and local individuals and businesses. The festival also plays host to an MBN sanctioned BBQ cook-off contest featuring the ever-popular People’s Choice award that will draw BBQ connoisseurs from around the Southeast.
Festivities kick-off at 10 a.m. and the music pumps until midnight. Downtown streets are closed, allowing festival goers to dine in their favorite establishments or try a pop-up vendor, shop the festival arts or our merchants, and dance in the street with your partner or kiddo.
