CELTICFEST 2016 IS A WRAP

THANK YOU!

Jigs were danced, reels played, ballads sung, pipe bands marched – and a great time was had by all at CelticFest 2016.

Thanks to everyone who attended, performed, participated, volunteered, sponsored and supported the festival. You made it all so much fun, so exciting, and such a success. We all have wonderful memories now to last a year!

See below for some amazing images of this year’s festival.

These shots were taken by our intrepid photog, Keith Dunn, with assistance at the parade from Rory Coomey. Blake Williams sent us the Bodhran Workshop photo.
