The pipes summon the Highlands to Hartford for the main event! Guests will experience the spirit of the Highlands, along with top traditional and Celtic rock bands on two stages, Highland athletic games, step dancing, bag pipers, birds of prey, Highland cows, kids’ activities, puppetry and storytelling, sword demonstrations, Celtic food, and plenty of Ten Penny Ale! Headlined by Celtica!
Pipes in the Valley is produced by The Olde Burnside Brewing Co., in partnership with Riverfront Recapture.
Can't wait until Saturday to start celebrating? Start the party early at the Pipes in the Valley Happy Hour on Friday night!
