It is with heavy hearts we regret to announce, due to circumstances beyond our control, we must cancel your festival for July 2021. Unfortunately cancellation is necessary due to the late lifting of COVID-19 health restrictions. We find that due to the late lifting of restrictions we are unable to present the same caliber event we have proudly produced these past two decades. We are unable to secure any international artists due to the on-going world-wide pandemic, unable to provide imported beers at sufficient quantity, unable to present a full cultural area, unable to provide whiskey tastings, and unable to create the required new festival layout needed due to significant construction taking place at our festival site. In addition to the previous reasons listed, we also believe that a full festival at this time would financially damage our nonprofit organization’s ability to present festivals in the years to come.
We are already planning our return in 2022 so that we can deliver the high quality event we all know and love.
Please mark your calendars for the 2022 Dayton Celtic Festival: July 29-31, 2022
In lieu of our full 2021 Dayton Celtic Festival, which we usually hold at Riverscape MetroPark, we will present smaller events at various downtown locations as part of an event we are calling the Dayton Celtic ‘Knot’ Festival Celebration - keeping the Celtic spirit alive in downtown Dayton the last weekend in July. Details for the 2021 Dayton Celtic ‘Knot’ Festival Celebration are below.
