After much consideration, the Off The Rails Summer Entertainment Series will be returning to the stage at Burr Park in June. The planning board (made up of the Dalton Convention & Visitors Bureau, Downtown Dalton Development Authority, Creative Arts Guild and Community Foundation) are moving forward with organizing the 2021 series to include weekly concerts, festivals, and more!

Currently, the series is scheduled to return in June with the entertainment schedule to be determined. Off The Rails will feature free, live entertainment every Friday at the Burr Park Stage in Downtown Dalton and every 3rd Friday in the fall.


The Off the Rails Entertainment Series is held at Burr Performing Arts Park (101 S Hamilton St, Dalton, GA 30720) in the heart of Downtown Dalton. Enjoy dinner and drinks at the many local restaurants Downtown within walking distance before the show starts.
