St Augustine Celtic Music & Heritage Festival

Please join us in 2016 to celebrate romantic St. Augustine’s Celtic heritage. Saturate your senses in the sights, sounds, and tastes of our Celtic history.

The sounds of the ancient Celtic peoples of Scotland and Ireland are as alive today as ever in the Nation’s Oldest Celtic City at the St. Augustine Celtic Music & Heriage Festival, March 11 – 13, 2016 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. 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 Oldest City’s Historic District.

But the hands-down favorite of the St. Augustine Celtic Festival is the music. Bands from Scotland, Ireland, Canada and around the U.S. play both traditional tunes and Celtic rock throughout the two-day festival – arguably the best collaboration of Celtic artists around. We’re talking Scots-born Albannach and Ireland’s Dublin City Ramblers just to name a few, attracting fans from throughout Florida and Georgia, from Savannah to St. Augustine, Orlando and The Villages.

The founder of St Augustine, Pedro Menendez, was from the Celtic region of Spain.
Celtic musicians, Highland Games, Clans & Celtic Vendors.
Arguably the best collaboration of Celtic artists assembled in the US.
Savor both Celtic food and local offerings.
