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 & Heriage Festival, March 10 & 11, 2018 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
