Best bets this weekend include the Durango Celtic Festival and Stillwater’s Night Out Dance Party and Fundraiser.
The Durango Celtic Festival kicked off its seventh season Friday, and will continue through Sunday. This year’s festival brings award-winning artists from a variety of Celtic countries to the stage, including SuperTrad, The Jeremiahs, Dave Curley, and Patsy O’Brien. Performances will take place at the Stater Hotel and Irish Embassy Pub throughout the weekend.
The festival will also offer workshops Friday and Saturday at the Strater downstairs and the Pub/Underground. The workshops cover topics of singing, songwriting, dancing, and playing various instruments. They are geared toward intermediate to advance levels, but beginners are welcome to attend and audit the workshops.
Festival-goers have the option to purchase three-day VIP passes for $100, daily passes ranging from $15 to $40, or workshop passes for $10 to $25. For more information or to purchase passes, visit www.durangocelticfestival.com.

In addition to live music, party-goers can also enjoy drinks and appetizers, and participate in a raffle.
