Celtic Classic It’s fun to return for a day each year to the annual Celtic Classic event, and we were glad to be back this year after the pandemic cancelled the event in 2020. Bagpipes, demonstration of athletic prowess, men, women, and children in kilts… this event has it all. The Celtic Classic historically attracts over 280,000 visitors to downtown Historic Bethlehem. More than 600 volunteers made this year’s 34th Annual event a huge success. It was presented by the Celtic Cultural Alliance, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting the Celtic heritage through education, musical presentations, and traditional competitions in athletics, piping and dance. We are already looking forward to returning to this exciting event in 2022!
