Celebrating the cultures of Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Wales, and all Celtic Nations with the 30th Annual Sonora Celtic Faire located at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds.

This year the faire will present 4 stages of Celtic Music featuring: Celtica, Tempest, Wicked Tinkers, Brick top Blaggers, Stand Easy, Black Irish Band, Cooking with Turf, Golden Bough, Pub Crawl and many more…

We keep adding more non-stop entertainment for everyone which includes: Scottish and Irish Clans, belly dance troupes, Scottish dancers, Irish Step dancers, Celtic Windows in Time (featuring 600 costumed re-enactors and 2500 years of Celtic History), jousting, armored foot combat, Welsh longbow archery, street performers, a giant, a fire-breathing dragon, Vikings, jugglers, and a fire eater. Other highlights include the large Celtic food court and Celtic marketplace, with 80 Celtic vendors, artisans, and craftspersons. A special feature at the Faire this year will be the Scots and Irish Whiskey Bars. The best single malts and blends will be sampled and judged by the festival goers. The Faire will also offer a large tavern offering Guinness, Harp, and other fine Celtic imports on-tap!
