Celtic Celebration

March 18 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

In the early 19th century, skilled Irish immigrants came to Worcester County to work on the Blackstone Canal and the railroads. Join us today as we celebrate their cultural heritage through music, dance, storytelling, and poetry.

  • A step-dance performance by Lee Irish Dance
  • Performances by Celtic Harper Cate Mahoney
  • Dip a candle (additional $3 fee)
  • Listen to a reading “The Rune of Saint Patrick”
  • See a few Irish-themed artifacts from the OSV Museum Collection
