Come to Celtic Faire, Saturday 10-4, Sunday 8, 10, & 3:30

Our Celtic Faire is a fun, family-oriented festival, celebrating our patron Saint Andrew, Celtic spirituality, and the heritage of the 60 parish families who have roots in Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. This year’s Faire will take place on Saturday and Sunday, October 21 and 22. The Saturday Faire lasts from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Admission to the Faire is free.

Our entire church building is transformed each year into a festive Celtic village with a Bake Shoppe, Tea Room, and a marketplace where wares for sale include leather items, Celtic jewelry and gifts, quilted and handmade items, and knitted and woven goods.

A Ceilidh – or Celtic talent show – is a big draw with Irish dancers, singers, bagpipers, and storytellers performing on two stages. A member of our congregation demonstrates spinning and weaving, and offers her creations for sale. An ongoing highlight of the Faire is our Vintage Jewelry booth, where all sorts of wonderful finds are offered at bargain prices! There are also activities and games specifically intended for children, and they love to take part!

On Sunday morning, October 22, at 8:00 and 10:00 AM, we celebrate the Calling of the Clans, with Celtic-themed music and pipers. Come worship with us! On Sunday afternoon at 3:30, Christine Sine will deliver a wonderful presentation on Celtic spirituality. And the weekend culminates with the Celtic Faire Banquet, Presentation of the Haggis, and festive auction.
