The 22nd Annual Ohio Celtic Festival

It is with a heavy heart to announce that we are officially canceling the 2020 Ohio Celtic Festival, Sept. 25-27. The health and safety of everyone concerned was the top priority in making this very painful decision.

On behalf of the Ohio Celtic Festival family, I would like to thank all for your continuous support through the years.

Great appreciation goes to all our volunteers, committee members, our sponsors, entertainers, vendors and you, our attendees and followers.

Last, but not the least, huge thank you to the Lake County Visitors Bureau and the City of Mentor for the trust and support for the Ohio Celtic festival!

We'll be back with a big celebration September 24 -26, 2021! Keep in touch, be safe and may God bless us all!
