The 39th Southern Maryland Celtic Festival and Highland Games has come to a close. We want to thank all the festival goers, competitors, entertainers, vendors, law enforcement, and emergency medical staff. Most of all we’d like to give a big thanks to all of our volunteers for the all work they do in preparation, logistics, setup, execution, breakdown, and cleanup that makes this festival possible.

 
We’ve already starting planning for the 40th Southern Maryland Celtic Festival and Highland Games to be held on Saturday April 28, 2018. Volunteers are greatly needed for the festival and for events throughout the year.
