The music was great from stage performers to bagpipers from all around. Many of vendors to choose from and the food we had was good. There were kid geared activities and fun for kids to do. There were a lot of dogs there. It was all around a good time! Look forward to next year.

This was our 3rd yr. attending the festival and I must say it was just OK. We really felt there should have been some sort of programs with a layout of the different events and tent names. The one and only map displayed at the entrance was oriented wrong so you had to change your perception of your bearings. Food was so-so, nothing we would make a point to come back for.

From Our Editors

The cultures of Scotland and Ireland haven't always meshed in the history book. However, at the Central Virginia Celtic Festival & Highland Games, these two proud heritages will coexist happily for a weekend of autumn fun. Read on to learn more about the festival's highlights:

  • The Athletics: The main attraction of the festival are the feats of Scottish and Irish athleticism on display. Like any good Highland games, that means plenty of traditional heavy events, recognizable by the giant weighted items that are hefted, tossed, and pressed in pursuit of victory. The festival also offers a full slate of other sports, including rugby and hurling, a favorite of Ireland and its Gaelic Athletic Association.
  • The Arts and Music: The festival also offers a showcase for traditional arts and music. Aspiring performers will compete in various performance contests, in disciplines ranging from fiddle and harp to pipe and drum. There will also be plenty of Highland dance sessions, for those who just want to see dance for dance's sake.
  • The Activities: Elsewhere at the festival, these an activity for every mood. Highlights include live music from the Fighting Jamesons and other Celtic bands, bagpipes, dancing, fiddle and harp competitions, bounce houses, pumpkin and face painting, kids games, heavy athletics, and traditional food and beverages.
