Our History

The New Salem Mountain Festival started as a celebration at the changing of the seasons from summer to autumn – some people think the most beautiful time of the year – when brilliant color of the trees provides a glorious background for beautiful and exciting works of art.

This festival sponsored by the New Salem Community Improvement Club is a celebration of human talent amidst nature’s splendor and welcome all to more abundant living. Join us in recognition of this abundance at New Salem on Lookout Mountain between Trenton and LaFayette, Georgia, the second full weekend in October each year.

Fun for the old and young, come spend the day. Food and drinks are available at the Festival. The food booth is sponsored by the New Salem United Methodist Church. Come have some of our acclaimed chicken stew, bar-b-que and other delightful treats!

Absolutely no alcohol, drugs or pets are allowed.
