The unofficial end of summer is here folks – the 14th annual Niagara County Celtic Heritage Festival and Highland Games is this weekend, Sat Sept 13 & Sun Sept 14! This amazing event up in Olcott, NY, on the beautiful banks of Lake Ontario, really does have something for everyone. There’s the Clan Village, the Highland feats of strength and the unique food and drinks, of course. But there’s also many special events including pony rides for the kids, a dog agility demo, a dart tournament, a magic show, rugby games and much more.
Oh yeah and music; lots of great music all day and into the night on three stages. McCarthyizm is suitably stoked to play the Saturday night Ceilidh on the main Pavilion Stage from 5:30 – 7:30 followed by the always entertaining and rocking Glengarry Bhoys.
Go to www.niagaraceltic.com for all the details. And for the love of Celt, be there.
That’s the South Buffalo Irish Feis, 14th anniversary. And it’ll be a special one because long-time legends Black 47 will be stopping in at this beloved Cazenovia Park festival as part of their farewell “Last Call” tour. This “Funky Ceili” will include music, step dancing, rugby and more, starting at 11 am and concluding at 10:45 pm with fireworks. And all the entertainment is FREE. McCarthyizm hits the main stage at 6 pm, right before Black 47. Join us?
This Saturday, August 23rd, McCarthyizm heads down to the southern tier of NY for the annual Jamestown Regional Celtic Festival. It’s held on the beautiful banks of Chautauqua Lake, Lakeside Park, on Water Street in Mayville, NY. You want an early show? You got it! We’ll be at the Beer & Wine Garden Stage from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm but the festivities, including Highland Games, pipe bands and Celtic vendors, go until 10, so stick around with us for the day. Caber toss, anyone??
