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 have the unique atmospheric benefit of being located at the nationally acclaimed Australian Standing Stones. Each year up to twenty different Clans and representatives from the six Celtic nations turn out in force to hold their annual Celtic ceremonies and spectacles’.
Each year we review our program to ensure it has something for everyone – from Celtic music and dance performances by Australian and international artists to our prestigious awards and competitions including: the Australian Celtic Music Awards; Australian Celtic Dance Championships; Australian Celtic Fashion Awards and Australian Celtic Busking Awards.
Alongside music and dance our entertainment program includes a street parade, re-enactment groups, Celtic Strongman event, Kirking of the Tartan, massed pipe bands, children’s entertainment, combined schools’ concerts, boutique stalls including themed food and beverages, poets breakfast souvenirs, merchandise, and a fun run.
The 2021 Festival will be different to what we’re used to – but still packed with action and Celtic celebration – held Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of May.
Come experience this unique Festival in the spectacularly colourful Autumn that is a highlight of our cool New England climate.
