SADOE To Present Northern Nevada Celtic Ceilidh On May 20
We are pleased to announce that SADOE will hold the Northern Nevada Celtic Ceilidh on Saturday, May 20 in the Reno Brewery District of Downtown Reno.
Celtic rock band Tempest and Golden Bough will be our headliners. We also intend to have local Celtic entertainers including the Sierra Highlanders Pipe Band, vendors and food trucks.
Earlier this year 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 next year.
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., is dissolving this year.
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.
