The Celtic Society of West Tennessee is pleased to announce the new location for its annual CelticFest. This year marks the 11th year for the event and will be held on the grounds of the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville. The Heritage Center, along with the Brownsville-Haywood County Chamber of Commerce, are partnering with the Celtic Society to present the two-day festival September 17-18.

Celtic is sometimes mistakenly thought of as just describing the culture of Scotland and Ireland. However, at one time, the Celts inhabited all of Western Europe. 

The West Tennessee group is based in Jackson and includes members from Tennessee, Kentucky and Arkansas, as well as other areas of the country. Volunteers donate their time to create an authentic, family-friendly experience that includes Celtic food, music, one-of-a-kind merchandise and demonstrations.

CelticFest is the primary fundraiser for the non-profit group who raises money each year for worthy causes throughout West Tennessee. Admission is $6 per person, per day or $5 with a nonperishable food donation for Feeding Haywood.  Children 12 and under are free. This is a rain or shine, family-friendly event. 


LIBATION STATION
OPEN 5:00 p.m. UNTIL 9:00 p.m.
 Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at The Depot at Discovery Park of America! Admission to Libation Station is free, and the walking track and lake are open for the guests to walk and fish!  For a listing of the acts, click the link below!

Corinth Battlefield to Commemorate the 154th Battle Anniversary 

  SHILOH, Tennessee - Shiloh National Military Park will commemorate the 154th anniversary of the battle of Corinth by offering interpretive programs over a three day period from Monday, October 3, through Wednesday, October 5. “We invite everyone to visit the Corinth Battlefield as we remember the events that took place in Corinth 154 years ago,” said Superintendent Dale Wilkerson.  “The programs will provide visitors with a unique opportunity to engage park resources that are normally challenging to access on a daily basis.”  Visitors will also have the opportunity to discover unique stories about the battle such as the story of an eagle named “Old Abe,” the mascot of the 8th Wisconsin Infantry, who became one of the casualties of the battle.  Rangers will offer battlefield hikes, multimedia presentations, and car caravan tours over the three days.     In addition, a Junior Ranger table will be set up especially for the younger visitors.  The Junior Ranger table will be available Sunday, October 2, through Wednesday, October 5.  Children are invited to visit the Center and participate in the Junior Ranger program which includes the special Centennial Junior Ranger Activity Book.    A complete schedule of hikes and car caravan tours is posted on the park website at www.nps.gov/shil or find us on Facebook.    Visitors are invited to preregister for the programs by calling the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center at 662-287-9273.  Participates should meet the guides at the appointed sites and times, and are encouraged to wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather and terrain.  Visitors attending more than one hike are encouraged to have food and water available.
