ABOUT Sarasota Celtic Music Festival

line-text
What is Sarasota Celtic Music Festival

Sarasota Celtic Music Festival is operated by:

New World Celts, Sarasota Chaptera 501(c)(3) organization

In times of old the Celts believed on that night between the passing of the old year, and the arrival of the new, that the veil between our world and the Otherworld (or spirit world) was thinnest, and that spirits and faerie folk could visit the human world, and vice versa, and that you could contact your passed ancestors. That belief has continued with today’s Halloween traditions of witches and ghosts, etc.

The Christian church called the festival ‘The Feast of all Saints’, on ‘All Saints’ Eve’ or ‘All Hallows’ Eve’, hence the term “Halloween”.  Source http://www.mauiceltic.com/celtic-beliefs.htm     

Dance in the new season as we eat, drink and be merry, remembering those who have gone before us!

Oh and don’t forget to bring your lawn chairs!
