The Garrett County Celtic Festival is making a return for 2021! We are thrilled to have this longtime favorite back in action as we return to in-person events. It will be a bit different than years past but will still be a fun celebration with great Celtic music throughout the day.
About the 2021 Garrett County Celtic Festival
The festival is Saturday, June 5th from 10:30AM until 6PM. Friendsville Community Park will once again be the venue – rain or shine! Located along the Youghiogheny River, it is just a short drive from the Deep Creek Lake area. A fishing access is located on the far side of the parking circle near the baseball diamond. The river is shallow here and it’s a great spot to cool if it is hot!
Tickets must be purchased in advance this year. No tickets will be sold at the gate. Click here to purchase your ticket. The cost is $15 for adults, $5 for ages 11-18, and free for ages 10 and under.
This will be a socially distanced event. Bring your chairs or blankets to relax and enjoy the live entertainment. Leashed dogs are welcome too. Ruth Enlow Library will provide activities for kids to do with their families, and food vendors will be on hand too.
Highland games and indoor activities will not take place this year, but there is a fantastic line-up of music.
