Okay, who likes a Celidh? Well then, who knows what a Celidh is? If you do, then you’ll have skipped ahead to find out where, when and who – but if not, you’ll be glad to learn it’s a Celtic dance event, and there’s one happening at Saturday’s Fifth annual Celtic Faire at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Tacoma.
Every year the church finds its Celtic roots (and yours) to put on a day of Celtic music, singing and dance (that’s the Celeidgh); caber tossing; a high tea or ploughman’s lunch; a bake shop with shortbread, oatcakes and other Celtic staples; kids’ activities; and a vendor marketplace that includes vintage jewelry.
The event concludes with worship services for the Feast of St. Andrew on Sunday, with bagpipes, calling of the clans and a Celtic spirituality seminar.
The faire runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday; worship is at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Sunday; the seminar is at 3 p.m. Sunday. All of it is free. St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, 7410 S. 12th St., Tacoma.
