Celtic Festival at Deep Creek Lake

Part of what makes Deep Creek Lake such a great place to rent a property or own a lake home is the great events that happen all year long. Those in town this weekend will be in for a treat with the McHenry Highland Festival going on at Deep Creek Lake from Friday, June 3rd through Sunday, June 5th.

After a day of boating and playing at Deep Creek Lake, head out to enjoy a night of toe-tapping and hand-clapping at the 24th Annual McHenry Highland Festival. The weekend kicks off on Friday evening with a concert of Celtic music to get you in the spirit for the following days’ Scottish celebrations. Burning Bridget Cleary and Bonnie Rideout will be performing a blend of traditional and original Celtic music while you enjoy light fare and a cash bar.

The rest of your weekend at Deep Creek Lake will be packed with fun with the McHenry Highland Festival picking up speed on Saturday. You’ll be able to enjoy activities all day long such as a Celtic climbing wall and Celtic buggy rides. The schedule of events will keep you entertained any time of day with events like Scottish country dancing in the morning and Celtic Dog Pat and Chat, Irish dancing and more musical acts in the afternoon.

For those just visiting Deep Creek Lake, you can also find a great souvenir at the McHenry Highland Festival. Vendors will be set up all around the festival grounds selling handcrafted Celtic goods such as jewelry, pottery, stained glass, clothing, art and more. This is a great chance to take home a unique piece of Celtic culture that serves as a reminder of the fun you had at Deep Creek Lake.

As you’re bound to get hungry dancing, wall climbing and browsing the vendor booths, there will be food available for purchase on the festival grounds. Traditional Scottish deli items in addition to everyone’s favorite festival foods like sausages, hot dogs and hamburgers will round out your Celtic weekend experience. If you’d like to venture outside of the McHenry Highland Festival, there are many Deep Creek Lake area restaurants worth checking out. Everything from pizza to Chinese food to fast food to fine dining is available right around Deep Creek Lake.
