Aye Lads and Lassies!

You don’t have to know how to pronounce an Irish ceili to enjoy one. (Pronounced “kay-lee”, by the way).

Although it’s typically defined as a dance -- or slightly broader as a party -- in Dahlonega, the ceili at Canvas & Cork, which takes place on the second Saturday each month, is a gathering of talented musicians, set within a delightful wine tasting room and art gallery. It’s the perfect mix of art, wine, good humor and traditional, enthusiastic Celtic music.

In fact, every Monday and Thursday night you can find local trivia experts and rank amateurs huddled around restaurant tables at Spirits Tavern (Mondays) and Shenanigans Irish Pub (Thursdays) comparing notes and deciding on answers to sometimes obscure trivia questions.

James “Free Jim” Boisclair

When Dahlonega was established in 1833, one of its first residents was a former slave who had recently arrived from Augusta named James Boisclair. Commonly referred to as “Free Jim,” among the local population, Boisclair opened a small mercantile and baked goods shop, on the site of the present day Smith House Restaurant.
