This event gives free access to the Celtic culture and all it has to offer. Cultural education is given by Highland Clans and Societies to help our guests learn of clan heritage, whether they belong or not. The Irish and Scottish Athletic Competitions are the traditional 'battles of brawn' that have been played for more than 300 years.

Recently, the Celtic Cultures Alliance of the Quad Cities has added a full-length rugby game with the Quad-City Irish Rugby team. There are performances with Celtic bands, singers and dancers that highlight and show guests the splendor of the Celtic entertainment world, while at the same time educating them. Workshops and educational presentations are done throughout the event and are offered for all age groups. There are family activities, children’s games, and storytelling for all who want to hear the tales. Dance competitions showcase the region's talented dancers of all ages.

Admission is free. 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
