Please join us at Pioneer Park in downtown Nevada City, California for a gathering of the clans during KVMR’s Celtic Ceilidh where there will be world-class artists plus our very own Nevada County Youth Arts Program entertainment. Our main stage will host world class Celtic musicians. Musical headliners include Alasdair Fraser, Ryan McKasson & Colin Cotter, The String Sisters and the Youth Arts Ensemble. Celtic musicians from Nevada County and Chico will host the Salem Street Session to open the day’s festivities beginning at noon.
This event is the biggest single fundraiser for community radio KVMR and this year it will be our first major post-pandemic event as we return to bringing music, fun and socializing to our community.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a low back chair and your dancing shoes. There will be 2 food booths and Lazy Dog ice-cream along with a beer and wine booth with items from the vendors available for purchase.
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!
