Failte! Welcome!      


We are CROFT

Our goal is to promote fellowship while researching the lifestyles and trades appropriate to the Celtic Peoples from 400 BC until 1746 AD. Although most members claim Scots, Irish or Welsh ancestry and do Celtic re-enactment, participation is open to anyone with an interest in period crafting, living history and entertainment, no matter what his/her ethnicity.

The sense of being a real village surrounding CROFT is vital to promote a feeling of family and fellowship which was a reality in earlier times. CROFT is a family-oriented and kid-friendly organization. 

We are based in the Metro Phoenix, Arizona area.

Monthly Meetings

Gatherings are held on the 2nd Saturday of every month at the Irish Cultural Center, 1106 North Central Avenue, Phoenix, AZ, 85004 (across from the Burton Barr Library) phone 602-258-0109. (Click for Map) The Board meeting is at 12:00 Noon with the General meeting starting at 12:30 pm
