Festival and Live Entertainment
The City of Euharlee hosts the annual Covered Bridge Fall Festival at Frankie Harris Park. This festival is a well-known, well attended event in Bartow County.
The festival weekend includes a Friday night concert, 60+ arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, free kids’ activities, live entertainment throughout the day, and prizes.
Sponsorships for the festival go towards supporting the three tenets of the city; historic preservation, recreation and conservation. The fall festival encourages all three of the tenets.
- Historic Preservation: Encourages people to visit the city’s historic properies.
- Recreation: The Covered Bridge Fall Festival provides good, old-fashioned family fun while showcasing some of Euharlee’s tourist attractions, natural resources (such as Euharlee Creek and the Etowah River), and beautiful parks.
- Conservation: Coincides with A. Most of the settlements that have happened here over the last few hundred years have been because of the access to the natural water resources that surround the city. The Covered Bridge Fall Festival helps regional tourists experience and appreciate the natural and historic setting of the city.
