After the cold winter months, spring is always a welcome time of longer, warmer days and nature's rebirth. Flowers are blooming, trees are coming back to life, and birds are singing cheerful songs. What a great time to bring the family to Ball Ground.
Ball Ground's 2023 events calendar is filled with many fun activities. You can also enjoy great restaurants, shopping, and parks — such as the beautiful Roberts Lake Trail.
The first event of 2023 is the 2nd Annual BBQ & Brews Festival on April 8, which will be held in City Park (177 Old Dawsonville Road) from 12:00-8:00pm. There will be plenty of food and entertainment for everyone.
On April 26, Ball Ground will celebrate Georgia Cities Week by hosting its 2nd Annual Touch-A-Truck Event, which is an opportunity for residents to check out the City's many work vehicles, learn about the valuable services that are provided, and get a look inside City operations. Touch-A-Truck will take place at the Ball Ground Community Building (250 Civic Drive) from 6:00-8:00pm.
The Georgia Swarm Lacrosse team, along with teams from the eastern band of Cherokee Indians from Murphy, North Carolina, and possibly the Mississippi band of Choctaw Indians, will offer lacrosse demonstrations at the City's Multi Use Recreational Field (235 Old Dawsonville Road) on April 29. The Georgia Swarm is an Eastern Division team in the National Lacrosse League. The team plays its games in the Gas South Arena in Duluth. Event time is to be determined.
