This coming weekend in Paducah, the Western Kentucky Highland Festival in Carson Park runs from Friday Sept 12 to Sunday Sept 14. Their website has been down for a couple of days but you might be able to get some more information by calling (270) 443-2064.
A Celtic festival used to take place in Hopkinsville but the October festival was cancelled in 2002 due to a number of reasons including a lack of volunteer support. It was supposed to be rescheduled in 2003 but there hasn't been any word of a new date.
The next closest would be in central Kentucky near Glasgow. The Glasgow Highland Games will take place from June 3 to 6, 2004.
Thank you, Keltic. I didn't realize they had any so close. I was just in Paducah last week on busines. (@ 2 hrs. drive). I am going to try to make it this weekend if I can get arrangements made. (Kids and the wife works part-time). Are you from this area or is there a website that has listings? Thank you again for taking the time to reply.
Your welcome Ranger. I actually have a listing on my website (Keltic Nations) with over 300 festivals and games taking place around North America with links to their sites. I started it about 5 years ago as a matter of interest for our business and ended up continuing with it. I am now building on to it to include non-North American events.
