Once everyone recovers from daylight savings this weekend, they can then get completely outta whack next week when CelticFest takes over Vancouver.

From March 14th to 18th, 2007, CelticFest Vancouver will present hundreds of local and international artists at more than 60 events scheduled at dozens of popular venues and two outdoor stages along Granville Street [CelticFest]

It’s a 4-day long event with free concerts, street market, shows, and the grande ol’ St. Patrick’s Day parade downtown on Sunday the 18th. There are SO many events going on, I’ll just highlight the two that I’m most looking forward to.

  • The St. Patrick’s Day Parade – Sunday March 18th @ 11:00am. One of the main reasons why it’s at the top of my list? It’s free.
  • Dylan Thomas: A Profile of His Brief, Bright and Mercurial Life. The event features stories, poems and an Oscar-winning documentary about the Welshman, his works are very close to my heart.
  • The entire festival kicks off this coming Wednesday March 14th at the Yale, followed by free lunch time concerts in Pacific Centre and on Granville (@ Cordova).

    We’ll be sure to consume many Guinness, especially since John’s no longer puzzled by the elusive ‘widget’ [RadioZoom]. Who knows, maybe we’ll even make it to the Canucks game vs Detroit on St. Pat’s Day. Now THAT would be a weekend from which to recover.
