Dakota Tavern expands to country Hayloft Dancehall

The countdown is on - in nine short weeks, the only-in-your-Pinterest-dreams Hayloft Dancehall will come to life again in Prince Edward County. The Dakota Tavern has taken over Cherry Valley's rustic not-a-disco, and the hall will re-open to local and international country, roots, blues, and rock bands from May until September, Thursday through Sunday. It's a plaid wearin' beard strokin' road trip dream, and yes, the nearly 50-year-old barn is available for private events.

The Dakota (and the Whippoorwill)'s Shawn Creamer and Shannon Kohlmeier will also be expanding the 200 person capacity hall's beverage menu to include local fodder, to make your concert experience / axe throwing wedding complete.

Elliott Brood, The Beauties, and Instant Rivalry kick off the opening party May 15 (it's an early show, because like, the country) and The Strumbellas play May 22. Prepare yourself: Cherry Valley is about a two and a half hour drive (or two and a half to five albums) east of Toronto.
