The temperature is coming down, but things are hotting up as the number one Celtic celebration in the southern hemisphere approaches. This year’s National Celtic Festival is going to be the best yet – we say it every year, but it’s always true!
Excitement is building in the town of Portarlington, here on the rolling green hills of the Bellarine Peninsula, as the music and spirit of this renowned festival gets set to draw people in from afar.
World-class Celtic performers and Celtic fans alike are excitedly preparing to board planes, trains and automobiles to make their way to Portarlington for the long weekend, June 7-10.
A smorgasbord of Celtic music, dance, song, language, poetry, pipes & drums, Celtic cuisine and all manner of quirky Celtic pursuits will be on the menu.
With family friendly entertainment, undercover heated venues with ample seating and expertly-run workshop program for adults and children – there’s something for everyone!
