Song, dance, music, poetry, pomp, ceremony, spectacle, living history, parade, clans, special events, and (of course) bagpipes.

Visitors and performers flock to Glen Innes in the heart of "Celtic Country" for the annual Australian Celtic Festival held the first weekend in May. And all involved agree that the festival is getting better every year.

Spread over 4 days, highlights include music and dance at multiple stages and venues, displays and workshops, storytelling and poetry, clan gatherings, a huge parade through Glen Innes' heritage main street, strongmen, living history displays, massed bands, traditional kirking of the tartans, Celtic yard dog trials, fun run and walk, Celtic stalls, food and more.

We have a fabulous array of entertainers lined up for the 2014 festival: some old favourites making a welcome return, and some new. See our performers page for a complete list of artists.

Originally developed as a meeting place for the Celtic Clans and Associations of Australia to gather and celebrate their Celtic history, the festival is held at the Australian Standing Stones overlooking the rural township of Glen Innes.

Join us in the beautiful New England Tablelands of New South Wales from 1st-4th May, for the 2014 Australian Celtic Festival.

Oggy Oggy Oggy! Oi! Oi! Oi!
