The fourth annual Barrington Celtic Fest opened this afternoon.

The event, which runs through Monday, features live music and DJs, including headline performer American English on Saturday.

Other highlights include performances by Irish dancers and bagpipers, food and beverages, and guest appearances. A family-friendly day is planned for Sunday.

Much of the entertainment will take place in a huge heated tent erected over the 200 block of Park Avenue. The festival tent opened at 4 p.m. today and will remain open until 1 a.m. The tent will be open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday and Sunday. Schedules and band lineups can be found at www.barringtonpub.com.

Admission to the tent is free during daytime hours. An event donation of $10 per person is requested for access to the tent Saturday evening, with a portion of the proceeds supporting the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life.
