Joust And Jig - Celtic Faire Draws Crowd From Afar
The 26th annual Sonora Celtic Faire drew a sizable crowd Friday through Sunday, March 9 through 11 as faire-goers of all kinds, from reenactors to musicians to crafts people and food vendors converged on the Mother Lode Fairgrounds to experience a little medieval life and history. There was royalty courtesy of the St. Andrews Noble Order of Royal Scots reenactment group and jousting, just to name a few of the highlights.

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for the 26th annual Sonora Celtic Faire held over the weekend at the Sonora Fairgrounds, March 9-11 and the crowds were out in force dressed in their medieval finest.

There was the ever popular whiskey tasting of 10 different whiskeys comprised of Irish whiskey, single malt scotches from Scotland, and bourbon from the United States; gobs of vendors selling their wares from clothing to handcrafted items; and plenty of good music from Celtic and Irish bands from around the world.

Take a look at the wild times happening at the annual Celtic Faire!
