GODERICH CELTIC ROOTS FESTIVAL

August 1 - August 3

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL: The Celtic Roots Festival is a three-day outdoor festival showcasing the world’s best of Celtic music, dance, and art all in the beautiful setting of Goderich, Ontario. With five stages, varying from small intimate performances to the high-powered Main Stage, the Festival is a unique musical experience in Canada and on the world-wide stage. Fresh local food, high-quality craft artisans, art demonstrations, children’s activity area, an evening market – and over 60 hours of live music – make this an unmissable weekend in Goderich. A visit to the Festival is also a great way to experience Goderich, “the prettiest town in Canada”, with the stunning beaches of Lake Huron and downtown shopping all within minutes’ walk of the park.

ABOUT THE COLLEGE: The Celtic College is a four-day immersive event the week before the Celtic Festival that teaches the ins and outs of many types of Celtic music, dance, and craft art, taught by the artists who will be appearing at the Festival on the weekend. Classes cover a broad range of instruments, styles, focuses, artistic mediums, and levels of experience: anything from beginner fiddle tunes to advanced Irish harp technique, from ceilidh dancing to Ontario step dance, or from blacksmithing to illuminated letters, and everything in between.

ABOUT THE CAMP: The Celtic Kids Day Camp runs Monday to Friday morning. Like the College, it concludes on Friday afternoon with a Showcase at the Festival, where the kids show off their new skills to their parents and guardians.
