The Reno Celtic Celebration is at Bartley Ranch Regional Park in south Reno. This two day event has something for everyone in the family to enjoy, including Irish and Scottish dancing, Celtic music, a variety of vendors, and my favorite, demonstrations of highland games. If you've never seen athletic events like the caber toss, you've got to check it out. Animal lovers can visit the Celtic Critter Village and see animals with a Celtic origin. Did you know that there are more than 60 Celtic dog breeds and two Celtic cat breeds?

The 2012 Reno Celtic Celebration will be held on October 6 and 7. Tickets are $10 a day or $15 for both days, with kids under 12 free with an adult admission. There are no pre-sale tickets - they are only sold at the gate. Bartley Ranch Regional Park is off Lakeside Drive, about a mile south of McCarran Blvd. There is a sign at the entrance to the park.
Don't bring your pets: Except for service animals, pets are not allowed at the Reno Celtic Celebration unless they are part of the Celtic Critter Village. All animals must have an Animal Pass.
