be part of something special

Whether you’re an aspiring artist, dancer, performer, musician or band with a Celtic vibe, a passionate clan or society, a live-action or re-enactment group, wanting to have a stall at the festival markets, keen to enter a competition or present a workshop, or interested in volunteering, there are so many ways to get involved with the Australian Celtic Festival!

Our 2023 festival attracted over 6,000 attendees to our town of Glen Innes in Northern NSW that comes alive with colour and festivities during the beautiful season of autumn each year. 

Our 2024 festival will take place between Thursday 2 and Sunday 5 May, with the main event based at the Australian Standing Stones – our National Celtic monument. And it’s going to be another big year, as we highlight the Celtic nations of Ireland and the Isle of Man. We hope you’ll join us!
