Hi to all of our supporters. It was an adventurous and hot weekend at the Guinness Cincinnati Celtic Fest presented by FedEx Ground. If you haven’t already read any of our blogs, here is a little background history about the street faire.
Guinness Cincinnati Celtic Fest presented by FedEx Ground is a yearly free Celtic Festival.The Guinness Cincinnati Celtic Festival, presented by The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick Foundation is one of our largest fundraising events. It takes place in July this year directly in front of the Great American Ballpark on Freedom Way. Join us to celebrate Celtic Heritage with family fun, great food, Celtic music and more.
We expanded on the farmers market layout. We are bringing belts, purses, wallets, cord keepers, growler carriers, wine bottle carriers, bracelets and a few journals. We got all our products into one large bin but still needed two vehicles for the setup. We’re still searching for a 15 passenger van to put everything in it. We started a Ko-fi Page! Ko-fi helps creators get support from fans of our work. Please support or follow our page! https://ko-fi.com/dragoncatleather . We set up a goal of $5000 to buy a van.
Setup for the festival began at 9:00 am. The setup was an adventure because of the heat, unrelenting sun, and arriving at setup at 2:30 pm . It ended up being a beautiful night for the festival on Friday. Saturday and Sunday, the temperature soared to the high Nineties. Everyone was excited to be out and enjoying the festival. There were about 30 vendors at the festival. It was a good mix of vendors featuring Dublin Pub from Dayton. There was a Scotch and Irish testing tent. Also, we had live music by some wonderful bands (Lost Celts, Mad Maudlin, Easter Rising) led by the headliner Seven Nations.
We will be back at it again at Tsubasacon in October from 1pm to 11pm on Friday, 9am to 7pm (saturday), and 9am to 4pm(sunday).
