KVMR is getting into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit Monday by opening early ticket sales for the public radio station’s 18th annual Celtic Festival and Marketplace, Sept. 26-28.

Main stage musical headliners for this year include Mary Jane Lamond and Wendy MacIsaac, The Screaming Orphans, Runa, the Hanz Araki Band featuring Colleen Raney and many more.

Each year the Nevada County Fairgrounds is transformed into a Celtic village. World-famous Celtic musicians perform on the main stage.

Shopping and dining opportunities abound, with more than 50 vendors and a complete Irish pub.

Hundreds of regional performers, singers, bagpipers, actors, jugglers and storytellers roam the fairgrounds.

This fall, they will again offer the Free Friday Youth Arts Program, giving local students ages 10-18 the opportunity to participate in workshops with headline performers.

Amateur and professional athletes test their strength and skill in Scottish Games. Children are kept engaged with arts and crafts, story telling and romping on the straw bales.

Seniors are admitted an hour before the event opens on Sunday and treated to scones and tea.

The festival is disabled accessible. Camping and RV hookups are available on-site.

The KVMR Celtic festival is presented by Community Radio KVMR in cooperation with the BriarPatch Co-op.
