Lexington's Scots Irish Heritage Festival

It's no blarney ... there's going to be a Scots Irish Heritage Festival in Lexington on Saturday, April 14, from 10 am - 6 pm. Held at Rockbridge County High School on Greenhouse Road in Lexington (hit the MapQuest) and sponsored by the Lexington-Rockbridge Chamber of Commerce, it is sure to be a hit. These types of festivals are usually held in larger cities so this is a treat.

Featured music will be provided by Carl Peterson, Mary Smith, Poisoned Dwarf, Robin Rich, Virginia Highlands Pipes & Drums, and Warpipe.

Enjoy living history from The Sterling Swordplayers ... Highland games demonstrations ... food ... educational displays ... vendors.

There will be fun for big and little leprechauns alike. Cost: adults are $5, children ages 6-17 are $3 each. The wee ones under age 6 are free.

For more info call Robert Chambers at 540-463-5375 or e-mail With the Scots-Irish blood in this Valley, this will most likely be a popular festival.
