2017 Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival & Highland Games

The Niagara Celtic Heritage Society invites everyone to their 17th Annual Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival & Highland Games which will be taking place September 16 & 17. History will come alive at lakeside Krull Park, inside the charming village of Olcott Beach. Guests of this yearly festival, less than an hour drive from both Buffalo and Rochester, will find themselves immersed in the traditions and pageantry of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

Upon entering the grounds guests will be enchanted by Irish Step Dancers, thrilled by Pipe Bands, and mesmerized by historical re-enactors. Visitors should be sure to visit the athletic field, where they can cheer on their favorite athlete as he or she competes in the centuries old Strongman Competition known as Highland Games. Young children will be enthralled with the kid's area, complete with mini-Highland Games, crafts, rides and more! No trip would be complete without a visit to the Marketplace where guests will discover unique gifts, foods, and crafts to take home as a reminder of their incredible weekend.

After all the excitement, guests can relax under the pavilion to the sounds of Celtic music, as they enjoy the celebrated foods offered in the food court. Visitors should be sure to stay late on Saturday night for the Ceilidh (Kay-lee), a celebration of music and dancing. It is a party that everyone on the grounds participates in, ensuring great fun and many fond memories.

Admission to the Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival & Highland Games is Weekend $25/ Sat $20/ Sun $12, Children 12 & under are FREE, and there is plenty of FREE Parking. Live Celtic music, dancers, athletes, clans, re-enactors, vendors, food, and children’s activities come together to make the festival a truly memorable day for all! Krull Park, Olcott Beach, NY. Festival Hours are Saturday 9/16: 10am-10pm, and Sunday 9/17: 10am-6pm. For much more information, including the latest schedule of events, visit www.NiagaraCeltic.com or call 716.778.5730.
