9:00 am to 6:00 pm Arizona Highland Celtic Festival! A HUGE heartfelt THANK YOU to the many volunteers who have helped make the festival and other related events happen! Without dedicated volunteers we would not have such wonderful events.
7:00 pm promptly, Tastes of the Celtic Regions (exclusive spirits and foods) Zane Grey Ballroom in the Weatherford Hotel (23 North Leroux, Flagstaff)- $40/person, For tickets call Jude 928-556-3161.
A unique experience into the world of Celtic food and drink awaits the 30 lucky people to purchase tickets for our Celtic Whiskey and Hors d'oeuvres event at the Zane Grey Ballroom in the Weatherford Hotel. Held during our Arizona Highland Celtic Festival, this event is not to be missed. Spirits from Asturias, Brittany, Isle of Man, Scotland and Wales will be featured. All are authentic and quite hard to come by, but two are noteworthy: Anis de la Asturian is the most traditional anise liqueur in Spain; and Manx Spirit, a blend of Irish and Scottish whiskies, which, following a proprietary process is crystal clear.
Finger food includes biscuits from Cornwall, Manx and Irish cheeses and bread from Galicia. Galician bread is so popular that even Chinese restaurants in the region serve it with their food. Must be over 21. Seating limited to 30.
