Celtic Gathering

Celtic Gathering Date: Sep 9, 2017

On September 9th Sherwood Forest Faire will open its faire grounds for another free-admission Festival of world-class Celtic Music and Highland Games, complete with Celtic Clan booths, handicrafts, several booths serving gourmet foods, and cold pints of ye favorite brews.

Camping will be available the night before and the night of the festival from 2pm Friday to 2pm Sunday, September 8th -10th. This year, in order to expand our musical line-up we will be charging $5 per person for camping. That price includes both Friday and Saturday nights.

This year as our new headliner, we welcome back CLEGHORN, the father-son Celtic duo who last played at Sherwood Celtic Music Festival in 2014. We will also, of course, host BLAGGARDS on the Greenwoode Theatre Stage, where they have held reign every year since 2011. THE JIG IS UP! will also be returning with their powerhouse of traditional Irish musical maestros. And the SAN ANTONIO PIPES AND DRUMS will bring us the sounds of the Highlands.

Also this September we will expand the musical lineup to Sherwood Forest’s new pub the Lionheart Tavern! North Texas and Houston Irish School of Music will sponsor the Lionheart’s Stage with a wide range of Celtic Talent. The lineup for the Lionheart and other surprises will be announced in the weeks to come. Until then, put a Shamrock in your calendar over the weekend of September 8th – 10th and plan on joining us for the Sherwood Celtic Music Gathering of 2017!
