We’re Back & Bigger Than Ever!

The 4th Annual Celtic Festival Fundraiser is back and it’s bigger than ever! Hosted by VFW Post 2661 in Washington, MO; you’ll find fun for the whole family!

Dance a jig along with the Celtic bands and Irish dancers. The sound of bagpipes will fill the day as an Irish Piper wanders the grounds!

Visit our Whisky, Wine, & Beer Tasting Tent and get a bite to eat. The “Celtic Nachos” are a must-have!

Of course, no Celtic festival is complete without Highland Games!  We invite you to participate – learn from expert athletes from Ancient Athletics as you try your hand at the caber toss or stone throw! Even the kiddos can play in the small-scale version of the games! 

The entertainment line-up is amazing and includes Shilleligans, The Shamrock Irish Dancers, Plaid to the Bone, and The St. Louis Legion of Honor! We’ve also got sheepdog herding, a petting area for the kids, a bouncy castle, amazing food and drink, and opportunities to win money and prizes!

So put on a kilt or your favorite Celtic-themed outfit and join us in raising money for our Veterans while we celebrate Scottish and Irish culture on September 14th from 10 am – 6pm!
