Our Mission:

To share Celtic Heritage with our community through entertainment and education.

What is the Reno Celtic Celebration?

Celtic Celebration, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit cultural programming and heritage organization that produces the annual Northern Nevada Celtic Celebration. 2019 will mark our 28th event. The Celtic Celebration was started by Fitzgerald’s Casino/Hotel. It began as a Celtic New Year celebration during Samhain (Halloween, the beginning of winter on the Celtic calendar).

For several years it was operated as a gated event at the Reno Livestock & Events Center. Then it became a free event in Wingfield Park in July, as a part of ARTOWN, for the next several years. 2007 marked a return to the Fall and a new venue as well – beautiful Bartley Ranch Regional Park.

Last year, the festival moved to a new date and renamed itself as the Northern Nevada Celtic Celebration to better represent our region. The Celtic Celebration is presented as a community and family event that is suitable and safe for all ages and sensibilities. Volunteers are always welcome!
