Welcome

On behalf of the Northern York County Historical & Preservation Society (NYCHAPS) and the Dillsburg Area Business Association (DABA), welcome to the Dills Celtic Festival! Over 275 years ago, Scots-Irish settlers like the Dill family ancestors established homes, farms and businesses in areas west of the Susquehanna River as part of the new American Dream. This is the epicenter of Matthew Dill’s American Dream, a 500 acre property purchased in 1742 that would see the gradual development of an entire thriving community! In the spirit of these early Scots-Irish dreamers, today we celebrate their Celtic heritage and culture.
