Old Sturbridge Village, Celtic Celebration

March 18 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm EDT

In the early 19th century, skilled Irish immigrants came to Worcester County to work on the Blackstone Canal and the railroads. Join us today as we celebrate their cultural heritage through music, dance, storytelling, and poetry.

Special daytime Celtic Celebration-themed activities* include:

  • A step-dance performance by Lee Irish Dance
  • Dip a candle (additional $3 fee)
  • Listen to a reading “The Rune of Saint Patrick”
  • See a few Irish-themed artifacts from the OSV Museum Collection
  • Listen to bagpipes and harp performances

See Schedule for Saturday

It’s also Maple Days and we’ll be showcasing the entire sugar-making process. Learn more about Maple Days here.
