The Pikes Peak Celtic Festival is back in 2014 after its relaunch by the City of Colorado Springs, The Colorado Springs Friendly Son’s and Daughters of St. Patrick, and the Scottish Society of the Pikes Peak region. On June 20 – 22, 2014, Memorial Park (in Colorado Springs, CO) will fill with kilted pipe bands and athletes, the best in Celtic rock, trad music, authentic food, Guinness Beer, shopping, and more.

In 2013, the Colorado Springs based festival was reborn and is growing in its second year. The 2014 festival has many new offerings to checkout, including the addition of a late night concert on Friday with headliner Albannach, Delilah’s Revenge, and The McDeviants.

In addition, the festival will feature Guinness beer and authentic food from Jack Quinn’s Pub among other authentic food vendors. There will be an entire tent full of shopping from authentic vendors, a large music stage, a more intimate tented performance stage, and live Celtic cuisine cooking demonstrations.

Furthermore, clans and societies will gather at the festival as well as Western Region Pipe Bands, solo bagpipers and drummers, Highland athletes, and more to compete against the best. Competitions will run all day Saturday and Sunday. Patrons will also get to live history in the living history area, witnessing characters and displays from days gone past.

Tickets and more information to the Pikes Peak Celtic Festival are available online at www.PikesPeakCelticFestival.com or at the gate. Guests who arrive at the festival before 5:30pm on Friday night, June 20th, will receive FREE admission to the festival that night.
