One day – Two Events – March 17, 2018

Put on your green and join us on March 17th at the Bartow History Museum for our Celtic Family Festival and St. Patrick’s Day Party, two green events…one day!

Kick off the day, by bringing the family, to our Celtic Family Festival, a time for guests to learn about the history of Norwest Georgia’s Celtic Heritage.  Participants will have the opportunity to discover interesting facts about Celtic history, enjoy costumed storytellers sharing traditional tales from the Celtic world, create unique crafts, and appreciate the music of Debra Peterson, a performer with over 20 years’ experience, including performances at the Georgia Renaissance Festival.  According to Dr. Joshua Graham, Manager of Programs, “This is an opportunity for any family, with or without a Celtic connection, to experience a hint of the culture.”  The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Complimentary tasty snacks are included for those that come early.  Attendees will also have the opportunity to shop local vendors selling soap, candles, jams and jellies, honey, and baked goods at the Celtic Festival.  Tickets to the event are $10 for adults, $5 for children, and museum member tickets are free.  Tickets are available at
