Celtic Classic 2018


Are you as excited as I am to celebrate the best of Celtic culture right in historic Bethlehem. The festival runs from Friday through Sunday. Expect big crowds. I am definitely ready to toss a caber and eat some haggis. Oh … and drink some whiskey!

About CCA

Since 1988 Celtic Cultural Alliance (CCA) has been hosting the Celtic Classic Highland Games and Festival in Bethlehem each September. This internationally known celebration of all things Celtic has been the foundation upon which CCA has been built.

The goal of this dedicated group was to create an event that symbolized the Celtic spirit and history, and to provide the impetus for an organization that focused on promoting the Celtic culture.

The CCA has expanded with year-round programming to support the mission of promoting and preserving Celtic Culture through arts, music, literature, dance, and history programs. In keeping with the spirit of “Next Generation”, the CCA also offers scholarships to promising young students of the Celtic Arts. These scholarships are offered to students including Irish Step Dance, Highland Dance, Fiddle, and Bagpipes.

$8pp in advance | $10pp at the door

The EPM Ice Cream Social is on the fist and third Sundays (did somebody say ‘sundaes’) of July and August — just when ice cream tastes the best.

The EFM Kitchen will be crafting their own in-house homemade ice cream with fruits and ingredients sourced from local farms, tropical growers and others for the freshest tasting flavors. Savor the fresh taste of berries from Jose Porter Farm and Trauger’s Farm; tropical fruits from Four Seasons; peaches from Comeback Farm & Scholl Orchards and Scholl’s apples too! And, of course, the traditional vanilla and chocolate ice cream. And don’t forget the toppings like cherries, sprinkles, cookie dough pieces, Oreo cookie pieces, graham cracker pieces, marshmallows with sauces like hot fudge, caramel, Nutella, and a fresh homemade raspberry sauce or peach sauce.

So grab some friends, your family or a neighbor and have fun making your own yummy ice cream float, the sundae of your dream, a loaded waffle sandwich, or scoops of your favorite ice cream!
