May 11 - 12: Celtic Weekend
Join us on our second weekend as we add a Celtic flair to the Faire. Enjoy fun games and contest as we honor those early Britons. Men, wear your kilts. Wee bairns, lads and lasses, get ready to "Count the Freckles" in the Children's Area. Listen and hum along as Celtic melodies echo through our Glen.
May 18 - 19: Pirate Invasion Weekend
Huzzah! The hills are swarming with rascals and rogues as a crew of scuvry pirates invade our shire of Covington Glen. See the swashbuckling and sword-brandishing of pirates galore.

Contest location and time will be posted at our Information/T-Shirt Booth (the first tent as you enter the festival).
