Northern Nevada Celtic Celebration and COVID-19

It is with great disappointment that the board who governs the Northern Nevada Celtic Celebration has decided to suspend its May 16, 2020 event due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We join other Scottish Games and Celtic Festivals in our region in having to make this unfortunate decision. Once this crisis subsides, our board will determine a future date. In the mean time, we encourage our patrons, vendors and participants to stay safe and healthy. Please look for updates at our Web site and our Facebook page:

We also encourage you to attend and support our two fellow Celtic organizations’ events once they resume in the Northern Nevada area, the Nevada Society of Scottish Clans ( and the Sons & Daughters of Erin ( Both organizations hold events throughout the year and contribute greatly to our festival.

For more information or inquiries, call 775-378-0931 or 775-379-0186

Anyone who has given money to participate in the Celebration will be refunded. Some already have been, some require snail mail. We appreciate your patience. At a future board meeting, we will discuss the likelihood of an event later in the year, or working towards 2021.
