CORTLAND CELTIC FESTIVAL 2012 is a ‘don’t miss’ event for the whole family August 18 & 19th!

Bring the family and join the fun & excitement on August 18th and 19th as the Cortland Celtic Cultural Association proudly presents our 12th Annual Cortland Celtic Festival to be held rain or shine at Dwyer Memorial Park on Little York Lake! Located between Homer and Preble, it’s our great new location and home for the Annual Cortland Celtic Festival featuring over 55 acres of idyllic and quaint lakeside park setting. A perfect family friendly fun and educational weekend getaway event! The park setting will let us grow to include a future Renaissance Faire theme event as well, with medieval knights, jousting, mock medieval battles and more! Join us this year as we have over 40 vendors, Irish Dancers from across Central New York, Celtic Food & Gift Vendors, Gaelic speaking Musician, Gaelic & Irish language & dance workshops, traditional Celtic Musicians, Pub Tent featuring Irish and Scottish brews from ‘The 77 Club’, a Celtic Worship Service Sunday morning presented by the McLean Church, Clans, Viking & Medieval Battle SCA Reenactments Saturday & Sunday, Kids Games, Crafts and Bounce Houses, Irish Food & Drink from Paddy’s Pub (have you tried their Guinness Milkshakes?) Plus a brand new festival addition-#1 on Esquire Magazine’s “The 75 Things Every Man Should Do” …Rugby! A Rugby Celtic Exhibition Match will be played on Sunday featuring our home team ‘Thundering Herd’ Rugby team athletes from Cortland-Homer playing against the mighty ‘Mohawk Valley Mercenaries’!
