One of my favorite local festivals, the Austin Celtic Festival was first held back in 1997 . . .
. . . and was promptly rained out and had to be moved in a hurry to the indoor Dessau Mussic Hall venue.
The festival has come a long way since its rainy, humble beginnings. It's now a 2 day event held at the spacious Fiesta Gardens just east of downtown and adjacent to Lady Bird Lake.
Highlights include: live music, dance performances, the competitive Highland Games, storytelling, lectures and workshops, children's activities, numerous food and crafts vendors, an archery area, and, of course, lots of Guiness.
