Enjoy the diversity. Discover the fascinating cultures of the seven unique Celtic lands. Delve into your own Celtic heritage or learn about the Celts who came from across the seas to help shape this great country into what it is today.
Absorb the setting. The beautiful township of Portarlington is nestled between some of Australia's best vineyards and the tranquil waters of Corio Bay, on Victoria's Bellarine Peninsula. With all festival venues being heated and cosy in easy walking distance.
Feel the music. Enjoy a packed program of world-class musical acts from Friday night through to Monday afternoon.
Admire the dance. Witness passionate performances and let experienced tutors guide you in the various Celtic styles. Then bring your new-found skills to the social event of the festival.
Learn the workshops. If you have always dreamed of playing the Celtic harp, reciting Gaelic poetry or performing an Irish step dance with your family then here is your chance. There are a great range of workshops on offer, for adults and kids, run by experienced tutors.
Browse the markets. Full of Celtic treasures and crafts the market stalls also offer a variety of foods to sustain even the hungriest throughout the festival as well as fresh local produce to take home and enjoy.
