Sherwood Forest's Celtic Festival and Highland Games proclaim the glory of Celtic history with a weekend of traditional music, athletics, and general revelry. Sherwood Forest’s 23-acre medieval village, 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 a dozen live Celtic bands, 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 at the rate of $10 per person.

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
