Australian Celtic
Fringe Festival

Sat 1 - Sun 2 May, 2021

About the Festival

The Australian Celtic Festival is renowned as the premier Celtic event of New South Wales. It is the only Celtic themed festival in Australia to recognise different Celtic Nations each year, and has the unique atmospheric benefit of being located at the nationally acclaimed Australian Standing Stones. Festival week sees many Glen Innes Highlands venues come alive with Celtic events and entertainment.

With Covid-19 precautions changing the way we interact, in 2021 we are bringing a new experience for our loyal Festival goers and encouraging a new audience with the Australian Celtic Fringe Festival Event at the Australian Standing Stones Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 May.

There will be 5 ticketed concerts featuring exclusive access to an eclectic line up of Celtic entertainment. We will have the popular Boar N Drum Bar and food stalls. Indoor and outdoor seating options will be available but tickets will be limited.

There will be a FREE market event around the Australian Standing Stones and everyone is welcome to explore the Celtic cultural markets, visit Celtic Societies and Clans and enjoy the Celtic Kids Fairy Marquee, the many Celtic Symposium demonstrations around the site and the Poets Breakfast. Check in will be required upon entry using QR code or manual sign in.
