Weekend In Entertainment: St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick’s Day is on Sunday and Spring is just around the corner, inspiring this weekend’s entertainment options in Charlotte. Andy Smith, arts and culture editor for Charlotte Magazine, joined WFAE’s Mark Rumsey to talk art galleries, St. Paddy’s Day and where to enjoy a green river.

Mark Rumsey: The Rogues is one of the groups that will be performing at the 7th Annual Celtic festival Saturday and Sunday at historic Latta Plantation in Huntersville. All things Celtic is the description of this event. Tell us more.

Andy Smith: You’re looking at from the Iron Age to the 20th century as far as what’s represented here. You’ll see warriors from all those areas, you’ll see encampments, you’ll see blacksmiths, you’ll see weavers and, of course, there’s also the whiskey tent where you can do some tastings. Food trucks and beer and all that great stuff, you know.

Rumsey: So it’s the 7th annual festival — that’s kind of a tradition there. Anything else that people should expect if they go out for that?

Smith: Yeah. I mean, I think it’s cool because you can kind of enter any era. It’s almost like the Renaissance Festival where you see people traveling in these different eras. And so people can look forward to that.

Rumsey: So it sounds like maybe two-thirds entertainment and one-third education?

Smith: Well, yeah. If you’re like me, you’ll want to go to the whiskey tent and go to the encampment.

Rumsey: Well, also on the St. Patrick’s Day theme, we have the Green River Festival at the U.S. National Whitewater Center
