This September 30th will be the first annual St. Brigit’s Celtic Fest in Frederick Colorado, a day-long festival of music, food, dancing, games, benefiting several community service projects in Frederick.
Brigit, along with Patrick, is one of the patron saints of Ireland, and one of things celebrated about her is her patronage of the arts. So one of the features of Celtic Fest will be an art show and competition, open to artists of all age groups.
Entries can be in any medium, and must have a Celtic theme, in whatever way that speaks to you. Sources of inspiration might be Irish or Scottish landscapes, Celtic music, legends, or history. Celtic Fest especially encourages you to research Celtic and Irish symbols for inspiration for your pieces.
Each artist may enter up to three pieces, with an entry fee of only $5 per piece. Art can be for sale (although this is not required,) with 30% of the sale price going to support Brigit’s Bounty and other community service projects in Frederick. Entry deadline is Monday Sept 25th, art drop-off is Sept 27-28, and Celtic Fest event is Saturday Sept 30th.
For more information and application form, please see Celtic Fest’s Art Show page:
And while you’re there, check out the wonderful music and other fun events!
