PA Renaissance Fair Hosting Celtic Fling & Highland Games June 25-26th

Over the weekend of June 25-26th, the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire will be hosting its Celtic Fling and Highland Games:
For one weekend in late June each year, Lancaster County’s Amish Country becomes the Celtic Capital of the United States as 100s of musicians, dancers, craftsmen, Scottish clans, Irish societies and rugged athletes from across North America and Europe gather for the Celtic Fling & Highland Games on the grounds of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. The Faire’s 35 acres will be covered in kilts, cabers, official Scottish athletic competitions, officially sanctioned Irish Dance competitions, Highland Dance demonstrations, border collie sheepherding, and Celtic crafts, food and music. Each festival day features over 50 musical sets, competitions and demonstrations.

The event is held on the grounds of the Faire and is open to the public from 11am – 10pm each day. Tickets are $26.95 for adults and $10.95 for children.

In addition, there will be a Celtic Fling concert the night before, June 24th:
Kick-off the Celtic Fling & Highland Games on the grounds of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire with a triple dose of Celtic rock at the Friday Night Concert, June 26. Everyone’s favorite “Titanic” steerage band, Gaelic Storm, blows into town for their second Celtic Fling appearance, while Fling favorites Ceann and Scythian get the evening started. Throughout the evening, fabulous foods and brews are available at the Swashbuckler Brew Pub. The gates open at 5:00 pm.
