Dayton Celtic Festival


An anticipated 80,000 people will head to RiverScape this weekend for Celtic Fest, and as always, there will be plenty of Irish food, beer, music, culture and live entertainment.  

The Celtic Festival, a celebration of Celtic culture, is held annually by United Irish of Dayton, a group promoting Irish heritage in the Dayton area.  

Celtic Fest is continually rated the top festival in Dayton, and it boasts three solid days of non-stop entertainment.  In addition to the four stages with continuous live entertainment, other festival activities will include a 5K Run/Walk, Celtic Bike Ride, Whiskey Tastings, Cultural Exhibits, and a fabulous Children's Area.  Come early Sunday morning for a Celtic Breakfast and Celtic Mass.

But it's the music that is the big draw - and the 2018 Celtic Fest will have several Headliners as well as 20+ Regional Celtic Acts.
