Sponsoring the Festival

The Saline Celtic Festival is held in July each year at Mill Pond Park in Saline. The festival attracts over 3,200 attendees and over 1,000 volunteers and merchants. Each committee chairperson puts in countless hours of their time to present the Saline community and
surrounding areas a successful event that caters to festival goers and presents a family-friendly
environment.

Celtic Tournaments and Games
Contestants enter tournaments loaded with both physical and mental challenges, all the time trying to work their way through the ranks of the Feudal System.

Celtic Music and Dancing
Saline Celtic Festivals have displayed a wide range of musicians and dancers. From Road
Kilt to Chicago Reel to internationally recognized Eileen Ivers, there have been a myriad styles of cultural presentations.

The Highland Athletics and Games
Always one of the crowd favorites, the Highland Athletics, sparks a lot of interest and positive
comments from festival goers. Competitors in the highland games carry out traditions dating back to the eleventh century.The events revolved around athletic and sports competitions. and include both amateur and professional athletes.

Our marketing efforts have included numerous news articles highlighting all aspects of the festival, press releases, media promotions, and marketing collateral. These efforts have reached beyond Saline and Washtenaw County into most of the surrounding counties in some form.

Direct fundraising and corporate sponsorship has resulted in substantial cash and in-kind contributions. Over 30 companies have contributed annually that has resulted in a successful financial impact on the Celtic Festival.

About the Friends of the Celtic Festival

In 2011 the festival formed the "Friends of the Festival", a 501(c)3 foundation established to aid in the fundraising and opertational efforts of the festival. The foundation is designed to transition the
financial requirements and stability of the festival to the foundation and away from the City of Saline in hopes of establishing an independence that will result in stability for the future.
One unique way the Friends of the Festival supported the festival was to create a 5K Walk/Run. This inaugural event had over 120 participants and created a 5K with a unique twist of having Bag Pipers entertaining the runners throughout the route.
