Shirlington Celtic Festival

Please join members of the Fairlington Social Club for the inaugural Beckett's Celtic Festival to be held on the closed off main street of Shirlington Village on Saturday September 21, 2013 from 11:00 AM until 7:00 PM.

As usual, this FSC meetup will involve the quaffing of cold frosty beverages.

We will gather at 11: 00 AM on the patio of Samuel Beckett’s Gastro Irish Pub to have a bite to eat along a creamy pint of Guinness to watch the bands from Ireland, the bag pipers, and the Irish dancers.

The wearing of kilts is optional.

    Hi All!
    By the time I got there 2:30 it was wonderfully crowded and then the rain crowded us in making us all BFFs!
    Glad I came but sorry I couldn't find the group.

      Hi Jean. I too missed the group - bummer. I see you're from St. Louis - I went to grad school at Washington University there :-)

    Not sure how I managed to miss an entire group of FIFTY, but somehow never saw the group :-( Enjoyed some of the music (particularly the bagpipes) then headed home. Hope everyone enjoyed!!!

    Bring cash to Beckett's Celtic Festival tomorrow if you want to buy food/drink there. From Beckett's website: We now have Sixteen vendors participating in our first ever Celtic festival. We think you will find a little something for everyone here.
    The music starts at noon and continues outside until 7pm. There will be music inside all day and throughout the night. Outside we will have food, alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks for sale.
    There is no charge to enter the festival. All those wishing to purchase alcohol must have a valid I.D. This will be stringently enforced. Those proving they are of drinking age will be issued a I.D. Band. Only cash will be accepted outside for the purchase of food, drink and shirts. We do have an ATM machine inside Beckett's, there is also a bank ATM available beside Johnny Rockets.
    The serving of alcohol outside will end at 630pm.
    We hope that you all have a wonderful time and enjoy mighty music, great food and drink.

    I will not be there exactly at 11:00a.m. but hopefully the group (at least most of you) will be hanging around for most of this event and I can catch-up with you in the early afternoon (230p-300pm or so). What's the best way to try to catch-up with the group? is there a number to call/text to find you? Thanks!
