Celtic Festival at St. Mathias Farm

13 Jun

The Farm on St. Mathias will host their 3rd annual Celtic Festival on June 25, 2011. The family event will run from 10 am until 4 pm. Admission is $8 for adults and $4 for children. A price worth paying!

I wanted to provide a list of some of the fun activties that will take place at Celtic Fest this year, but The Farm at St. Mathias has already done is so well. Here is quotation from their newsletter about the upcoming event:

“We are working diligently to bring the events of the Celtic Festival for 2011 together.  Again, this event will be held Saturday, June 25, 2011.  We continue to take interest in vendor participation and are finding them fast.  However, if you are or know someone who is interested, please have them contact us.  The lineup of music will be much varied this year with more than one act, dancers, storytellers and more. Our lineup will include sheep shearing, spinning, dying of wool and weaving.  We will also have blacksmithing and metalsmithing demonstrations.  We are working on a stonecutter as well.  We would like to think of it as a Cultural Festival — a mix of music, dance and artesian Celtic crafts.  We have also secured the partnering with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, which will be held in Brainerd the same day.  Our plan would be to offer a percentage of the gate fee to the cause for all folks who show up for the green wearing their pink.  Please spread the word.”

To become a vendor or for more information, call 1-888-404-5009.

**The Farm on St. Mathias is an organic CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) garden. Visit their website to learn more about CSA gardens. Especially interesting for those new to the term CSA is this video.**

Until next time, Elizabeth
