Old Sturbridge Village, Celtic Celebration

March 16 - March 17

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:

  • Irish dance performances from two different local dance schools
  • live musical performances by renowned Celtic harpist Cate Mahoney, in addition to fiddle and bagpipe music presentations
  • Irish stories and poetry reading

We will also be showcasing the entire maple sugar-making process as this weekend is also Maple Days.

To learn about all of our upcoming events, programs, items in our collection, and more sign up for our weekly email newsletter.
