The Australian Celtic Festival in Glen Innes, Nothern NSW is unique for its colour, spectacle and range of entertainment and history.  An opportunity to meet with friends and experience our country hospitality. The 2015 Australian Celtic Festival will honour the Celtic Nation of Wales. The festival’s main venue is the Australian Standing Stones, an array of spectacular granite monoliths like those around which the ancient Celts danced. To be there at dawn to listen to the eerie skirl of pipes in the autumn mists at the Standing Stones is an experience not to be missed.  The four day festival provides non stop entertainment including the street parade, spectacular ceremonial roles performed by re-enactment groups, kirking of the Tartan, massed bands, children’s entertainment, dancing, flag raising ceremonies, poets’ breakfast, yard dog trials, market stalls, fun run and Celtic foods.  The festival in 2015 will again draw clans, national groups, dancers and artists from across Australia and overseas.  You can partake in Celtic music and dance at one of the four stages at the Standing Stones or in one of the many concert venues in the town of Glen Innes.  For the full program, visit the Australin Celtic Festival website: www.australiancelticfestival.com
