Cancelled – KVMR Presents A Wee Celtic 2022
Due to concerns about unhealthy air quality, KVMR has made the very hard decision to cancel the Wee Celtic Festival event scheduled to happen Saturday, September 10th and work with all of those involved to reschedule it at a later date. Details about refunds are forthcoming. Call KVMR at 530-264-4164.
According to data from various air monitoring sources, air resource advisors and the experts from the Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District, smoke conditions in Nevada City are likely to be Unhealthy with periods of Very Unhealthy throughout the day on Saturday September 10th. The worst smoke impacts will be midday, possibly clearing by late afternoon after 4 or 5pm. Unfortunately, these predictions do not bode well for an outdoor event scheduled to begin at 1pm.
This is a fundraising event that we have once again had to cancel due to wildfire or pandemic related issues. If you feel so inclined to donate to KVMR, to help us make up for loss in revenue, we would very much appreciate it. Click HERE.
In the meantime, our EMS services in Placer County are strained and calling on neighboring counties for help. KVMR will now divert our staff and volunteers to the effort of informing and assisting our neighbors in need.
Thank you to all the performers, volunteers and Celtic lovers for their dedication and hard work to make The Wee Celtic Celebration happen. We will find a way to hold this beloved event safely at a later date.
“Come for the Music ~ Stay for the Magic!”
will be rescheduled, date to be determined

About The Festival:
First founded in 1996, the KVMR Celtic Festival includes eleven performance areas including five musical and six demonstration stages and a weekend-long youth arts instruction that has included Celtic music, magic, dance and songwriting.
The Festival is the main fundraising event of the year for KVMR Community Radio which operates as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) entity. Held in the early fall, the festival regularly draws over 7,000 attendees for the two days and the promotional outreach extends throughout KVMR’s listening area including a worldwide live streaming broadcast over the internet through iTunes and the KVMR website.
We continue to bring international performers to Nevada County and showcase an ever-increasing cadre of regional talent including musicians, dancers, and performing artists of every type.
Each year, the festival provides a professional performance venue for many young student musicians and dancers to perform in front of a live audience and hone their craft. Workshops and sessions are held throughout the event to provide musicians of every age and caliber an opportunity to learn from each other in a synergistic and fun atmosphere.
Funds for the festival are raised through sponsorships, vendor fees, ticket sales, program advertising, and beverage sales. The festival is produced by a team of over 300 volunteers who generously donate their time and energy year after year, plus KVMR’s small staff.
Your support of the Celtic Festival is a partnership with KVMR Community Radio that keeps independent, non-commercial media alive and well in the world.
We are honored to be able to continue to bring the music and magic of the Celtic genre to our community.
MUSIC, MAGIC & MUCH MORE!
