A schedule will be going up soon.
Please spread the word. We also have a fundraising Tea scheduled for April 1 at the Unicorn Wine Guild, we'd love everyone to come, proceeds go to support the festival. Reservations can be made by contacting the Unicorn at 740-423-1300. Due to the popularity of this event, there will be two settings this year, one at 12:30 the other at 4 p.m.
The menu will include Leek and Potato soup, Treacle scones with butter/preserves; Salmon fishcakes on toast points, potatoes stuffed with Shepherd's pie, Tablet,and Strawberry Cream shortbreads and of course, plenty of tea. Cost is $27.50 per person.

Vendors Please Note: We receive numerous inquiries from individuals/businesses/groups interested in setting up as vendors/exhibitors at our festival. We currently do not charge a fee for vendors, nor do we ask for any of their profits made at the festival, but we do require potential vendors provide us with information/photos of their products and they must be Celtic-themed merchandise/services. Exhibits must also be related to Celtic themes, Celtic culture, history, etc.
We have limited space and inquiries are appreciated early in the planning process. You can solicit information through our email: firstname.lastname@example.org. or call 740-777-5793 and leave a message.
A ticket to the festival entitles you to come and go throughout the day. We will stamp your hand if you want to return - the festival is a family-oriented event and even if you don't have Celtic ancestry, come and enjoy a new experience and bring the kids along to learn about another culture!!
Please no pets allowed unless it is a service animal.
