Go virtual with Ceili at the Roundhouse!

We’re so excited to offer virtual workshops for this year’s Ceili at the Roundhouse Celtic Festival!  

Let’ face it.  Our world is still in pandemic disarray.  Wyoming’s current CoVID-19 guidelines prevent holding a live event – at least one that’s similar to previous Celtic Festivals.  So, we brainstormed a bit.  And decided to bite the bullet and go virtual.

We know everyone’s tired of virtual – school, meetings, even church.  Yet, we still wanted to provide a meaningful festival.  Virtual workshops allow us to “scratch your Celtic Festival itch”.  And we don’t have to worry about the possibility of canceling the entire festival at the last minute. 

We’re offering a wide variety of topics and instructors.  Everything from instrumental instruction to step dancing to entertainment.  Whether you’re 3 or 93, we hope you’ll find something to wet your whistle!
