The Celtic Festival is produced by Romanza – St. Augustine,
a nonprofit Arts & Culture organization.
A wonderful event for the whole family! The band Albannach & the Highland games really make this festival!!!
“There is nowhere around here that comes anywhere near the magnitude that this festival does when it comes to immersing people in the culture and educating them on the traditions of this part of the world.”
Got there just in time to enjoy the parade, and it just kept getting better from there. The music, the games, the clans…it was such a great experience!
The Festival was fabulous-lots to do, lots to see. Plenty of entertainment. Keeps you interested. Really enjoyed the Celtic Music line up. Highland Games were entertaining. Merchandise offerings-lots to choose from. Food-lots of variety. Performances were excellent.”
Love it! Cannot wait until next year. Fantastic music and lots of vendors. The Highland games were great also. A good time for the whole family.
“I am never disappointed in the hospitality, atmosphere, and excitement when I come to the Celtic Festival.”

The sounds of the ancient Celtic peoples of Scotland and Ireland are as alive today as ever in America’s Oldest CELTIC City at the St. Augustine Celtic Music & Heritage Festival, March 14 & 15, 2020 at Francis Field on Castillo Drive.
Find the CELT in YOU as you take in the sights, sounds and tastes of centuries of European history in the “Nation’s Oldest City” – founded in 1565 by SPANISH CELTS. Celtic Clans show their ancestral pride, Highland Games athletes demonstrate their mind-boggling strength, vendors offer up Celtic cuisine and hand-made crafts, and the St. Patrick’s Day Parade marches through the streets of the Ancient City’s Historic District.
But the hands-down favorite of the St. Augustine Celtic Festival is the music.
The Festival has been praised as “Arguably the finest collaboration of Celtic artists assembled in the United States!” Bands from Scotland, Ireland, Canada and around the U.S. play both traditional tunes and Celtic rock throughout the two-day festival. We’re talking Scots-born Albannach and Ireland’s Dublin City Ramblers just to name a few, attracting fans from throughout Florida and Georgia, all over the US, and from Canada to Scotland.
The founders of St Augustine, 800 colonists and soldiers led by Don Pedro Menendez, were from the Celtic region of Northern Spain. MORE on the remarkable CELTIC HISTORY of ST.AUGUSTINE, FLORIDA: Tour of St. Augustine’s CELTIC Landmarks
