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
