Find the Celt in YOU, in America’s Oldest CELTIC City, at the “Finest Celtic festival in the United States”,
with Top International Celtic bands, authors, athletes, artisans and food!
The sounds of the ancient Celtic peoples of Scotland and Ireland are as alive today as ever at the St. Augustine Celtic Music and Heritage Festival.
With something NEW in 2020: Celtic NOIR! Authors Symposium featuring premier Celtic mystery writers.
And of course The ORIGINAL St. Patrick Parade (FIRST EVER in the WHOLE WORLD! Historically documented in 1601) marches through the streets of the Nation’s Oldest City’s Historic District. Celtic clans from around the world show their ancestral pride, Highland games athletes demonstrate their mind-boggling strength, and vendors offer up Celtic cuisine and hand-made crafts.
But the hands-down favorite of the St. Augustine Celtic festival is the music. Scottish and Irish bands playing both traditional tunes and modernized renditions of the ancient Celtic music appear live on stage throughout the two-day festival – arguably the best collaboration of Celtic artists assembled in the United States. We’re talking Seven Nations, Scots-born Albannach and Ireland’s Dublin City Ramblers just to name a few, attracting fans from throughout Florida as well as the 50 States and Canada – even Great Britain! Did you know that Celtic music had a profound impact on American bluegrass and country?
