The 1st Celtic Festival a Success! Stormed Breckenridge with Kilts, Beer & Irish Music

The 1st annual Celtic Festival held at the Main Street Station Plaza in Breckenridge was a success with a variety of vendors, a rowdy Guinness beer tent and music that kept the crowd dancing the entire event. The whole event was highly spirited with many dressing in traditional Irish and Celtic attire of kilts embracing their heritage.

This highly anticipated event was a great festival for young and old alike. Visitors came to look up their ancestry in the Scott Clan tent, enjoy live Celtic Music, visit the various vendors selling handmade products from the old country and bask in the sunshine in the Guinness Beer Garden. Vendors ranged from yummy food including turkey legs and beer to hand made scarves, hats, bags and more.

Organizer Karin Bearnarth was able to bring in amazing Celtic bands including Ireland’s own Cara and 2 Duos while Potcheen and the Young Dubliners (of the USA) rocked the final hours of the festival. It was fantastic range of music, from traditional bag pipers and folk music. This family event closed out the day under a sunny sky with the Breckenridge slopes serving as a backdrop for the main stage.

“The high energy and excitement from the music, dancing, and the numbers of people who attended the festival were the highlights!” stated one of the festival attendees.

Next year’s festival is slated for Aug. 27, 2011. But if you need a great event for this coming weekend than make sure you make it to Breckenridge for the Wine Festival! Stay with ResortQuest Breckenridge for the best deals and discounted wine tickets.
