National Celtic Festival

Friday 9th June - Monday 12th June 2017

Each year the picturesque little seaside town of Portarlington swells with visitors and with pride as it hosts this country’s biggest annual craic.

The National Celtic Festival is Australia’s largest and most diverse celebration of Celtic music and culture, showcasing a tremendous array of talent from around the world.

The National Celtic Festival is held annually over the June long weekend in Portarlington, Victoria. It is Australia’s largest and most diverse celebration of Celtic music and culture. Each of the five Celtic lands are represented – Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man. Every year festival-goers enjoy a huge array of national and international acts of the highest calibre. The family-friendly festival also prides itself on an incredibly diverse program of performances and workshops in a variety of Celtic disciplines, including dance, song, poetry and language.
