Looking for something fun for the family to do next weekend? We recommend the annual Celtic Festival in Newport, Oregon. The event is going to be loads of fun with a full set of Highland Games, authentic eats and even a Celtic Canine event. If you haven’t been before, it’s worth the trip to Newport. Among the many, many events, Bob’s Red Mill is sponsoring a baking contest for the best Irish Soda Bread, Shortbread and Oat Cakes. There will be festive music, highland cows to pet and a sand castle contest… what more could you ask for in the way of family activities?
So don your clan colors and come on out to brave the Haggis Bowl. We dare you!
If you’re not familiar with Newport, check out the city’s website for other amazing things to do there. I’ve always enjoyed the aquarium and a visit to Rogue Brewery for a quick pint.
