Celtic Classic Highland Games & Festival – Bethlehem, Pennsylvania (Sept. 23,24,25)

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is the home of this year’s exciting Celtic Classic Highland Games & Festival, which will run from September 23rd to September 25th, 2011.

Created by the local Celtic Cultural Alliance, this lively festival is the perfect way to celebrate a new season, while also enjoying an authentic taste of Irish, Scottish, and Welsh culture.

Highlights of this year’s festival include musical performances by Blackwater, the Paul McKenna Boys, and the Screaming Orphans.

This festival has a lot to offer its guests – for example, this year’s Haggis Eating Contest promises to be a unique experience for participants and spectators alike!

Other fun things to see and do include a full roster of Highland Field Games on Saturday, the 24th and Sunday, the 25th – including Caber Toss and Braemar Stone competitions.

In the Grand Courtyard, vendors will serve up hearty portions of traditional Celtic fare, including Irish stew, Shepherd’s Pie, and corned beef and cabbage.

Pipe bands, Irish Ceili dancers, and storytelling (and beer and whiskey tastings) at nearby Jameson Pub will add even more true Celtic spirit to this popular event.
