FESTIVAL | Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival 

Though in America it's hard to tell, Celtic culture entails so much more than reveling drunkenly in the springtime drizzle. If you're clueless about the Celts, now's your chance to learn more. This weekend, the Niagara Celtic Heritage Society will host the 14th annual Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival and Highland Games, which features the traditions and pageantry of Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. The festival is held at the lakeside grounds of Krull County Park (6108 Lake Road) in Olcott, which is about an hour drive west of Rochester.

The festival will take place Saturday, September 13, and Sunday, September 14, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Highlights include many musical performances, a clan village, craftsmen demos, a rugby match, storytelling, and more. Admission is $20 on Saturday, $12 on Sunday, $25 for a weekend pass, and free to ages 12 and younger. Parking is free.
