For the second year in a row, Sherwood Forest's Celtic Music Festival and Highland Games proclaims the glory of Celtic history with a weekend of traditional music, athletics, and general revelry. The 23-acre medieval village of Sherwood Forest, situated on rural woodland, opens its gates to delight merry-makers of all ages with a populace of artisans, cooks, tunesmiths, and strongmen. Jig and twirl to the melodic strains of more than 20 live Celtic bands, including a headlining performance from Ireland’s own Téada and the blarney rock of Blaggards, and discover future Yahtzee victories during a palm reading at one of the many booths in the marketplace. Bagpipe contests fill hillsides with majestic, plaintive trills on both afternoons, wringing tears and applause from the gathered masses.

The Highland Games span both days of the festival and pit burly kilt-wearing gents against each other in contests such as the heavy hammer throw and the caber toss, in which competitors swing weights, launch 16- to 20-foot wooden posts, and attempt to charm a smile from the Loch Ness Monster. Although this Groupon grants admission to only one day of the festival, overnight camping is available for $10 per person.


Although children 12 and younger receive a discounted admission of $8.50 and children younger 5 enter for free, this Groupon offers the best deal available for adult admission.

Nice renaissance faire. Fairly new compared to others I've been to, but that works in their favor. It is friendly and less pretentious and they're definitely on the right track to becoming an institution
