Hollywood Heads to Dahlonega

Dahlonega was ready for our close-up this morning as festival scene filming for the Sony/ABC television pilot “Hail Mary” began on the north side of the Historic Public Square. Weather was perfect and about 188 extras – many of them local – were rubbing shoulders with TV stars meandering through the “Bi-annual Corduroy Festival”. The magic of Hollywood, with dozens of production trucks, miles of cable and the sound of “action” and “cut”, was coursing through downtown Dahlonega.

Adventure Awaits in Dahlonega

A window of opportunity has opened in the North Georgia Mountains. Typically, it does not stay open for long so it's best to take advantage of it while it lasts. From late February through the end of March, mild temperatures and the lack of vegetation offer a unique experience to the visitor. If you're the type who likes to get out and explore, or just enjoy day trips with a bit of adventure thrown in, Lumpkin County is calling right now.

Aye Lads and Lassies!

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.
