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 2014 Australian Celtic Festival will honour the Celtic Nation of Cornwall. 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 2014 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

The 9th New England Regional Wine Show. The New England area is unlike any other grape growing region in Australia. This is due to the region's diversity from high altitude (with a good number of vineyards above 1,000m), to cool climate vineyards along the spine of the Great Dividing Range, then along the lower and warmer sites on the western edges of the New England Tablelands. Additionally, winemakers from adjacent viticultural areas were  invited to exhibit their wines . Every year The New England Regional Wine Show invites all vignerons & winemakers, using grapes from these areas to exhibit at the Wine Show. This will be a great opportunity to see the high standard of the local wines and compare them to wines from the other invited region. Wine Show 2014: October 16 - 17. Public Tasting and Wine Appreciation Workshop - Friday, October 17th, 2013.
