Australian Celtic Festival

Thursday 02 May 2019 to Sunday 05 May 2019

2019 will be celebrating Scotland.

Since 1992, crowds have descended on Glen Innes in New England High Country. They come for the Australian Celtic Festival. They are attracted by the unique Celtic experience, the opportunity to meet with friends and to enjoy famous country hospitality.

The four-day Festival attracts clans, cultural groups, dancers and performers from around the world. Entertainment includes a street parade, kirking of the tartan, massed pipe bands, yard dog trials, children’s entertainment, a fun run, dancing, flag raising ceremonies, poet breakfasts, market stalls and Celtic foods.

Each year’s Festival celebrates one of the Celtic nations.
