Celtfest is an afternoon of Ottawa Valley and Celtic entertainment performed in the natural amphitheatre of Gemmill Park
in the heart of Almonte.
It is a time to share historical Celtic traditions with local performers.
Celtfest also presents a select group of unique
artisans and vendors of specialty goods with a Celtic flair.

The Almonte Celtfest celebrates and promotes the Celtic heritage
of the Ottawa Valley through music and dance.
It gives up-and-coming performers an opportunity
to display their talents in their home community.
The festival is a free event with a wide  variety
of vendors of Celtic goods.
There is also a tent for seniors and entertainment for children,
along with food and beverages.
