Dayton Celtic Festival – July 29th to July 31st, 2011

Celebrate your Celtic heritage this summer by attending Ohio’s Dayton Celtic Festival; this fun-filled event is held in downtown Dayton at RiverScape MetroPark.

Designed to appeal to every age group, this festival is also great fun for little ones, who can learn about their Irish, Scottish or Welsh ancestry by spending time in the Rainbow’s End Kiddie Area, where there are plenty of exciting and educational activities planned just for children.

Your kids can enjoy special games, create crafts, and construct their own “fairy homes”, while getting a stronger sense of their own heritage.

Other great ways to spend your time at the festival include live performances of Celtic music and dance! Make the most of your visit by enjoying headline acts, such as Enter The Haggis, Scythian, and The Elders.

Traditional Celtic dance lights up the stage, as The McGovern Ceili Dancers and The Royal Scottish Country Dancers show off the beauty of stepdancing and highland jigs.

Participate in a hearty and social Celtic breakfast by attending a communal morning meal July 31st; running from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., this family event will feature sausage, eggs, bacon rashers, tattie scones, and so much more…

As you can see, this festival offers a range of amazing things to see and do; if you’re in Dayton in late July, be sure to drop by and celebrate your Celtic background.
