Reno Celtic Celebration
October 7, 2017 to October 8, 2017

Celtic Celebration, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit cultural programming and heritage organization that produces the annual Reno Celtic Celebration. This year marked our 25th event. The Celtic Celebration was started 25 years ago by Fitzgerald’s Casino/Hotel. It began as a Celtic New Year celebration during Samhain (Halloween, the beginning of winter on the Celtic calendar).

For several years is was operated as a gated event at the Reno Livestock & Events Center. Then it became a free event in Wingfield Park in July , as a part of ARTOWN, for the next several years. 2007 marked a return to the fall and a new venue as well – beautiful Bartley Ranch Regional Park.

The Reno Celtic Celebration is presented as a community and family event that is suitable and safe for all ages and sensibilities

Potty humor abounds at this Virginia City tradition dating back to the day when outdoor plumbing was outlawed and angry residents took their outhouses to the streets. These days, teams of three are pitted against each other in an all-out potty race to claim the latrine title. The races challenge teams of three costumed outhouse racers to zip down C Street, the town’s main drag, and hit the toilet paper finish line first. The Parade of Outhouses begins Saturday at noon with races immediately following.
