Hello friends, I have the unfortunate responsibility to let everyone know that, despite how hard we worked and how many unique ways we tried, we just won’t be able to make this event happen in 2020.
There are just to many obstacles for us to continue moving forward. We, the very small skeleton crew this year, worked really hard to bring this event back to life but this morning we agreed that it’s just not in everyone’s best interest. We really appreciate all the Highland Games athletes that were willing to compete, the vendors that signed up to bring their unique foods & wares, the bands we booked, the pipe & drums, the dancers, and volunteers that, in the face of everything going on, were willing to travel here and do what they love to do. They’re all the best people we could possibly imagine working for and alongside.
The most important part was not doing a halfway job. We only wanted to do this faire & games if we could do it correctly and provide our region the high level of execution they deserve and expect. While I know something may be better than nothing, that’s not our philosophy.
Now we will hit the reset button and start working on 2021 with more time on our hands to bring you a better and 100% running Celtic Faire & Highland Games. The thing we appreciate the most was the buzz created by our guests that show up every year to celebrate Celtic history with us! We’ll keep that momentum going into the next year and will see you at our annual St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl in 2021!

Had we never lov’d sae kindly,
Had we never lov’d sae blindly!
Never met—or never parted,
We had ne’er been broken-hearted.
