Our event took place on May 18, 2019, and by all accounts, it was a year of success! We couldn’t have done it without our amazing community, board members and volunteers! The music was awesome, the Athletics competition phenomenal, and the crowds and such were stellar! We had a great time and hope you did too!
To that end, we always want to improve, and we can’t know what people want or how we can improve if we don’t ask =) So, we have a wee little contest for you =)

The Clan Tent Area features representations from some of the area and regional collaborating groups as well as Clans where folks can look for Scottish and/or Irish Heritage and connect with family histories.
Finally this year we are excited and heartened to feature, on the lawn in the area between the dance stage and the beer booth, trainers from Eyes for Tomorrow, who will be showcasing their puppies in training at our event this year. While all the puppies won’t be of Celtic descent, their coming to our Celebration gives them valuable social interaction and socialization and allows our patrons to snuggle some cute! Check out their Facebook Page, too! Throughout the day there will be 12 puppies in training and their handlers, come by for a snuggle and observe the cute!
Finally, here is our Festival Map for the year:

We are super excited to announce PRESALE TICKETS!!
Our awesome Athletics head, Matt Hobbs, did us a solid this year, by suggesting that we use the “Passage” application to process both on-site and on-line presales. Please check out below to purchase and help us out!
