A few things to know before you go to Dayton Celtic Fest this weekend
3:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 26, 2017 Filed in What to Do
The Dayton Celtic Festival is easily one of area’s most well-attended events with a history of great crowds all three days at RiverScape MetroPark. Of course, they come for the music, the dancing and the interesting offerings from vendors. But we must be honest: A LOT of them come for the food and booze options.
Over the years, festival organizers have done an excellent job of making sure there’s plenty of variety of food vendors to find something to almost everyone’s liking. Whether you’re feeling like a giant turkey leg from Cork N. Bottle or haggis and chips from Highland Glenn Foods, or you’re thinking more like burgers and fries, the Dayton Celtic Fest will have you covered.

The festival has also remained consistent with many vendors like Blackjack Grill, Betsy’s Noodles, The Chicken Smells So Good and Brock Masterson’s Catering returning year after year.
However, the beer selection is something that is always a little different each time around – which can be a good thing if you’re looking for something you haven’t tried before. This year’s beer list is a mix of the very familiar with some well-regarded craft brews. Your choices are Belhaven Scottish Ale, Angry Orchard, Curious Traveler, Highland Gaelic Ale, Goose Island Summertime Kolsch, Shock Top Belgian Wheat, Bud Light, Rhinegeist Truth and Murphy’s Stout.
The Scottish Ale has pleased most beer mavens, who have given it favorable reviews on sites like Beer Advocate and Untapped. By now most have become acquainted with Truth, an IPA brewed just down the road in Cincinnati. It’s become something of a rock star in the craft beer community.
To loosely translate an old Gaelic proverb, “It’s not healthy if the glass is not emptied.” Sláinte!
