The 18th Annual Wheeling Celtic Celebration held at the Wheeling Artisan Center is scheduled this year for a one day event on Saturday, March 1, 2014.  The Celebration, sponsored by the Wheeling National Heritage Area Corporation, will open with entertainment and activities at 11 a.m.  The event is co-sponsored by the Wheeling Area Convention and Visitors Bureau through a marketing grant.  

The Artisan Center’s three floors will be filled with Celtic music, entertainment, dance, culture, and great food offerings.  There will be a children’s activity area conducted by the Children’s Museum of the Ohio Valley on the second floor from Noon until 4 p.m.  Celtic vendors will be a part of the Celtic Marketplace with locations on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building.  The vendors will offer a selection of wonderful Celtic merchandise for sale including clothing, Celtic stitchery kits, paper art specializing in contemporary Celtic design, pub shirts, glasses and signs, jewelry, photography, honey mead wines, and much more.  The Wheeling Celtic Society will be on hand on the 3rd floor to provide educational information about Celtic culture, heritage, and their local organization.  Members of Gallowglass will be set up on the 2nd floor to provide educational information and cultural presentations on various Celtic instruments and practices.

River City Restaurant will be open to offer their regular menu selections on the first floor and will offer ethnic food selections on the third floor including their famous Scotch Eggs and other Celtic delicacies as well as imported and domestic beers.  

This years’ entertainment will include returning favorites such as The Macdonald Pipe Band of Pittsburgh, Wheeling’s Gallowglass, Burke Conroy School of Irish Dance from Pittsburgh, Brigid’s Cross, and many more.
“The Wheeling Celtic Celebration has become an annual tradition enjoyed by many in and around the Ohio Valley and is a special time in downtown Wheeling.  It’s a time to celebrate Celtic culture and heritage and a time to gather with family and friends,” festival coordinator, Chris Villamagna states.  “It’s wonderful that this festival is now in its 18th year.”
