Potomac Celtic Festival 2011 – Cancelled
Loudon County levied extra costs on the Potomac Celtic Festival — as well as prohibiting advertising — and this and the lack of sponsors broke the bank. In addition, the Festival’s president and site chair, Hugh G. Colston Jr. sadly passed away in October.
As a result the Festival will not convene in 2011 and will look instead to 2012 and a new, smaller venue under new president, Patty Kloss-McKay.
Thanks to Cheryl Mitchell for the update.
