Pikes Peak Celtic Festival

When: June 20-22 2014

Quick quiz: Which local festival has organizers seasoned and crafty enough to reserve Memorial Park (1605 E. Pikes Peak Ave.) for the first official weekend of summer? Given that it's in just its second year, you'd be forgiven for not knowing that it's the Pikes Peak Celtic Festival. (Unless you already saw the photo to the left and still got the question wrong — that may be unforgivable.) As described on pikespeakcelticfestival.com, "The Festival field will be filled with the sound of Bagpipes, the smell of fish & chips, the sight of world champion Irish dancers ..." and that's before you even get into the whisky tastings, classic athletic events (see: stone throw) and clan appearances. Single-day tickets and weekend passes are available online. — Kirk Woundy

Price: $5-$25
