Gather in the beautiful township of Portarlington and unleash the spirit, discover the passion and experience the ancient Celtic culture with this wonderfully popular festival.
This normally quiet ba side village comes to life with the music, laughter and passion of the Celtic spirit as the winter festival (regarded as Australia’s premier Celtic Folk Festival) attracts over 16,000 people to the region over the three day long weekend. Across community halls and spaces, the hotel, restaurants, cafes and churches there will be a broad and diverse range of arts experiences that capture the Celtic culture in its many interpretations within the Australian setting with a diverse cultural arts program.
In addition to delicious Irish-inspired food, drink, music and dance, there will be a Kids Fest filled with quality children’s entertainment; a workshop program just for kids; and all the fun of the family-friendly Ceili dance party. Try out Celtic martial arts, hear fairy stories filled with goblins and leprechauns, and get involved with the extensive Viking display. So much fun!
