Cincinnati Celtic Festival on Fountain Square September 23 - 25 2011
Are you ready for the return of the Cincinnati Celtic Festival? Not just two days this year, but THREE! But wouldn't you need at least three to cover the Celtic nations?? Wait, Celtic Nations?? I thought we were only talking about the Irish here? Nope, the Celts are much more than that! The 7 Celtic nations aren't just in the United Kingdom, but across the Channel too! You've got Ireland, Scotland, Isle of Man, Wales, Cornwall, Galicia (Spain) and Brittany (France).
And with FREE admission to this event on Fountain Square, you're going to have a great time!
This celebration of Celtic culture will be packed with dancing, music, food & drink! And for the really hardy, they're having a Corned Beef & Cabbage Eating Contest Sunday afternoon!
And with so many nations represented, you can bet you're going to get a variety of music and dancing too! So far, there are two stages needed to support the 28 groups scheduled to entertain you during the Cincinnati Celtic Festival! And among the food vendors will be Claddaugh Irish Pub and Molly Malone's Irish Pub & Restaurant.
So WHEN do we need to head down to Fountain Square (intersection of Fifth & Vine)?
Friday, festivities kick off at 5 p.m. and the last entertainment goes on stage at 8:30 p.m. And by the way, the Cincinnati Reds game will be broadcast on the Big Screen too!
Saturday, things get rolling around noon, and the last group is on the stage starting at 8:30 p.m., and for you multi-taskers, the Reds game will be on the Big Screen again!
Sunday, be back at noon (and this time the Cincinnati Bengals will be on the Big Screen), and the last group starts performing at 6:30 p.m.
