National Celtic Festival



** SOLD OUT  **

Unleash your spirit and experience the culture.

Nestled between the Bellarine Peninsula’s renowned vineyards and the famous mussel farms of Corio Bay, this normally quiet bay side village comes to life with the music, laughter and passion of the Celtic spirit

This winter festival is regarded as Australia’s premier Celtic Folk Festival and attracts over 18,000 people to the region over the three day long weekend event each June.

The Festival uses a range of venues within the town, including community halls and spaces, the hotel, restaurants, cafes and churches. Marquees are also set up on the foreshore to provide additional venues; these include the Village Stage, Celtic Club, Wine Bar, and Celtic Markets. The National Celtic Festival program offers a broad and diverse range of arts experiences that capture the Celtic culture in its many interpretations within the Australian setting. The festival caters for all age groups and for a diversity of cultural and family groups. The festival has become an annual event for families and friends to gather, offering time to relax and experience the depth of Celtic culture through the festival’s cultural diverse arts program.

Over three jam-packed days and lively nights soak up the music, dance, art, poetry, cuisine, even Gaelic languages.
Enjoy the performances or be a part of the festivities by joining in one of the many workshops on offer, anything from limerick writing to bagpipe playing !
