Northern Nevada Celtic Ceilidh

Saturday, May 20, 2023

Reno Brewery District

SADOE will hold the Northern Nevada Celtic Ceilidh on Saturday, May 20 in the Reno Brewery District of Downtown Reno.

SADOE has booked headliners Tempest and Golden Bough. We also intend to have local Celtic entertainers including the Sierra Highlanders Pipe Band, vendors and food.

in 2022,  the Northern Nevada Celtic Celebration held a “Farewell Ceilidh” in the shared parking lot of Black Rabbit Meadery, Lead Dog Brewing and Nevada Sunset Winery on East 4th Street in Downtown Reno incorporating many elements of the festival, which had been held in Reno for nearly three decades. The festival at Bartley Ranch Regional Park had to be cancelled due to skyrocketing overhead costs due to the pandemic.

The event was successful enough and drew enough interest that the above-mentioned business owners, which includes SADOE Vice President Mike Steedman (co-owner of Nevada Sunset Winery) that they agreed to hold a similar event in 2023.

Earlier this year, the SADOE Board agreed to inherit the festival as a special event under the new name of “Northern Nevada Celtic Ceilidh” as the governing board of the previous festival, Celtic Celebration, Inc., dissolved in 2022.

SADOE Board Members Michael Del Ostia, Doyle Stewart and Willie Puchert, who all served on the Celtic Celebration Board, will serve as subcommittee members who will manage the May 20th event. More details to come.

We are pleased to continue the legacy of the Celtic Celebration and aims to keep its elements and attractions in our event.
