One Saturday evening of every month we jollify at McCaa’s Tavern from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm with live music, food, drink and colonial tavern games like Shut the Box and Nine Men’s Morris. Stop by and enjoy a glass of shrub, a popular drink in colonial America.

OUR MUSICAL GUEST:
Carolina Thunder Mugs
Carol was raised on a farm near Camden, SC. He was introduced to music early in life through his mother, a church pianist, and listening to the radio at night. He found inspiration in his youth, listening to artists like Jim Croce and James Taylor. He moved away to attend college and to test the musical waters in New York and Nashville, but ultimately felt led back home to South Carolina in 1981. His success in the music industry continued to grow in the years that followed and today performs full time at venues throughout the Southeast, as well as writing, recording and releasing new songs!
The Tavern, circa 1800, is a transitional design between Georgian and Federal styles, uncommon for the area. The building is currently interpreted as a late 18th century tavern.
Food, Beer & Wine (For Purchase)
Food, Beer and Wine are available for purchase while you Jollify. Water and Soda are available for free throughout the evening during each Jollification.
18th Century Tavern Games (Free)
We have a variety of tavern games to play and members of our interruptive staff are available to teach you. Games like Nine Men’s Morris, Shut the Box and Brother John are just a few favorites.
Shrub (Available for Purchase)
It’s not a bushy plant that adorn landscapes, it’s an 18th century beverage! It is typically derived from fruit and consisting of sugar, vinegar and alcohol. Depending on the season we have apple, pineapple, pear, pumpkin, and strawberry shrub for you to try.
The Historic Camden Foundation is not state or federally funded so we rely on individual donations. Even a small donation truly helps. So please send a gift and make a difference!
