The National Celtic Festival is Australia's largest and most diverse celebration of Celtic culture. Celts from around Australia converge on Portarlington over the Long Week-end in June.
From Friday night to Monday afternoon, festival-goers can enjoy Celtic music of the highest quality, from traditional to contemporary styles and everything in between. Enjoy music in large concert venues, wine bars and intimate acoustic venues. So whether you want to sit back with a glass of wine or dance to energetic Celtic Rock, there is something for everyone.
If dancing is your passion, you will love what is on offer. Experienced tutors from across the nation will get your feet moving in the various Celtic styles - Irish, Welsh, Cornich, Breton, Scottish... and then bring your skills to the Ceili and dance to the best Ceili band in Australia!
If you want to play an instrument, listen to poetry, read dramatic verse, sing or simply just join in and see where it takes you, check out the range of workshops on offer for adults and kids.
Join great musicians over the weekend at the session bar. You never know whom you might share a tune with!
