All ages.

The annual Sonora Celtic Faire celebrates the cultures of Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Wales, and all Celtic Nations at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds. You'll enjoy high-energy Celtic rock bands to the most traditional of groups. With 20 musical groups, performing on five stages, the faire offers something to every age and ear!

From Sonora- America's original Celtic Faire, featured on National Geographic Television, we keep adding more non-stop entertainment for everyone which includes: Scottish & Irish Clans, belly dance troupes, Scottish dancers, Irish Step dancers, Celtic Windows in Time (featuring 600 costumed actors and 2,500 years of Celtic History), armored foot combat, Welsh longbow archery, street performers, a giant, a fire breathing dragon, Vikings, jugglers, and a fire eater. Other highlights include the large Celtic food court and Celtic marketplace, with 80 Celtic vendors, artisans, and crafts persons. A special feature at the faire this year will be the Scot's & Irish-Whiskey Competition. The best single malts and blends will be sampled and judged by the festival goers. The faire will also offer a large tavern offering Guinness, Harp, and other fine Celtic imports on-tap!
