FREDERICK, CO – After a two-year COVID-induced break, Celtic Fest [https://www.celticfestbrigit.org/] returns to Frederick, CO in an expanded two-day version Sept. 24-25, 2022. Started in 2017, the festival annually drew more than a thousand attendees to the grounds of host St. Brigit Episcopal Church. Back now, bigger and better than ever after a two-year hibernation, the 2022 version will feature Colorado’s well-known RenScots [http://www.renscots.org/], along with music on the main stage by Denver-based Angus Mohr [http://www.angusmohr.com/] and Gadbaw & Krimmel [https://whitebirdsmusic.bandcamp.com/]. Visitors can quench their thirst with a visit to The Oak and Cloak Pub and enjoy St. Brigit’s famous Bath Water Beer, brewed by Longmont brewery Grossen Bart [http://www.grossenbart.com/].
David and Shelly Arnold, 2022 event coordinators, extend an invitation to the community: ”If you’ve been missing community and family-friendly fun, don’t miss the return of Celtic Fest. You can discover your clan, dance to great music, thrill to the skirl of the bagpipes and drums, meet new friends around the bonfire, and reconnect with the friends you’ve been missing. You’ll need two days to enjoy it all.” Vendors offering food and craft items will take over the 7.5-acre grounds, along with Celtic contests and heritage crafts.
Organizers are enrolling sponsors for festival events including whisky tasting, a parade, kirkin’ o’ the tartans, and a ceremony honoring first responders and military personnel. Volunteers from the community and sponsoring businesses are also needed. Admission to the festival ranges from $5.00 for a one-day child’s ticket (under 5 years, free) to $25 for a two-day adult pass. All proceeds will help feed the hungry in Carbon Valley.
