Old Town Winchester celebrates the community’s Irish and Scottish heritage with the 2nd annual St. Paddy’s Celtic Festival in Old Town Winchester on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 11:00 am to 10:00 pm. This festival incorporates entertainment including Celtic bands, Irish step dancers and Scottish bagpipers. Most performances will take place inside Old Town Winchester businesses. Weather permitting; there will also be activities along the Loudoun Street Mall. All activities are free and open to the public.
New this year, the Magic Lantern Theater and Handley Library will co-sponsor a noon showing of the 1954 musical movie Brigadoon at the Handley Library. The fun fantasy of two American pals on a Scottish hunting trip is a must see for the holiday. Click here for more details.
Free children’s activities will be available on the Old Court House Civil War Museum lawn from 1:00 to 3:00 pm (provided by Habitat for Humanity). There will also be a free leprechaun hunt with forms available at participating businesses and at a table in front of the Old Court House Civil War Museum.
