Celtic Festival of Southern Maryland
April 23 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
On the banks of the Patuxent River at Jefferson Patterson Park and Museum, in beautiful Southern Maryland, you will find on a cheery Saturday in late April, the sound of the bagpipes calling you home. Whether it be the music, food, dance or other Celtic attractions – we beckon you to join us as we celebrate the spirit of the 7 Celtic Nations in our 44th Annual Celtic Festival on April 23rd!
Enjoy the sounds of Internationally known Celtic Bands performing on multiple entertainment stages throughout the grounds, offering continuous music, dance and jam sessions throughout the day! Check out our Clan Row, where more than 50 clans and societies have information to share with you about your Celtic heritage! Watch Scottish/Irish country-dance performances, listen to harp and Scottish fiddling all while storytellers weave tales alongside historical displays, craft demonstrations and living history reenactments. Stop by the Celtic Marketplace for a wide selection of traditional and non-traditional Celtic foods and gifts providing an old world atmosphere. Be sure to check out the Children’s Highland Games and the all-day competitions taking place throughout the Park including Pipers, Drummers, Pipe Bands, Highland Dancers, Highland Athletics, and Rugby games!!
