Colorado Tartan Day Festival 2016
Set in a village style layout, Colorado Tartan Day kicks off the Celtic Festival season and this year we have expanded! We moved to the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont to accommodate “villagers”, vendors, clan booths, music stage and beer garden.Admission is FREE to the public. The festival is perfect for anyone wanting to celebrate all that is Celtic. Come learn about your history and ancestors. Watch historic re-enactments. Listen to the Colorado Youth Pipe Band and Dancers while munching on great food from vendors. Dance to Angus Mohr and Delilah’s Revenge. Meet new friends and catch up with old ones while visiting clan booths.
COLORADO TARTAN DAY
Created in 1996 by the Colorado General Assembly to celebrate a day in which all people celebrate the rich contributions of Scottish Americans to the state of Colorado. We invite all who embrace the Tartan to join us in celebrating family, community, nation, heritage and the human need for connection.
The Colorado Tartan is a beautiful display of patterns of color representing Colorado; pure blue for clear crisp skies, green for the pine and spruce that spread across the land and the yellow and red within the state flag. Many of the Colorado Tartan Day council members will be wearing the state tartan which will be available for order.
PHOTO, VIDEO AND INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITIES
A perfect public interest event for reporters and photographers to cover. Photo opts abound folks in regalia, as well as several members of the council are rich in the knowledge and history of all things Celtic.
