This weekend is the 21st Annual Celtic Festival. It is one of the few remaining festivals in the world that still celebrates the authentic music created and honed by the Celts. The festival celebrates the art, traditional music, storytelling, dance, culture, and extraordinary craftsmanship of the Celtic culture of nations like Ireland and Scotland. The Celtic festival will also include professionally instructed workshops, animal interaction, and a full Highland Games competition. The workshops will focus on music, dance, and historical activities. There are beginner to master level classes for instruments like fiddle, guitar, banjo, bodhran, foot percussion, and Irish pipes. The festival takes place at Pioneer Farms in Austin. The festival will also feature many forms or traditional Celtic dancing including the Hill Country Highland Dancers and the Austin Scottish Dance Society. Other workshops will be available to learn Irish language and traditional storytelling. The animal displays will feature Celtic dog breeds and miniature horses. The festival grounds will be filled with artisan merchants, food vendors, and beverage booths. Both days of the fest will feature Highland Games, Viking Invasion combat demonstrations, a Celtic campsite, and archery. You can participate or watch the Highland Games. The Highland Games are one of the oldest sports traditions in the world.
