Even though Oktoberfest and Cincinnati’s German heritage tend to take up most of the cultural spotlight, the Queen City has deep Irish ancestry. The Celtic Lands Culture Fest has celebrated that heritage for 15 years, and this St. Patrick’s season is no different. With an array of folklore and art straight from Ireland, Scotland and Wales, coupled with the fancy footwork of traditional Celtic dancers and folk tales told by sage storytellers and more, the festival will give any Cincinnatian reason to celebrate — whether they have a bit of Celtic blood in them or not.
