Celtic Festival Missoula is an annual celebration of great Celtic culture, focusing on music, dance, and food. Our mission is to perpetuate Celtic culture and to introduce the culture to future generations in Montana. The festival presents the culture both in its historical form and as it has evolved into new and modern forms, such as Celtic Rock. This great tradition is alive and we celebrate it with abandon through Celtic Festival Missoula.
The connection of Western Montana to the Celtic lands and its people has a rich history. It is only proper that those of us who have benefited from this rich historic culture now dedicate a great celebration to the Celtic peoples annually to enliven our spirits, enrich the soul and satisfy the longing within.
The Celtic Festival Missoula operates on a non-profit basis, with the proceeds after expenses going to charity.
The festival features a wide diversity of performers and styles. The food vendors and their menus are selected with great care. If you attend, the day promises to be exciting and one you will thoroughly enjoy.
Celtic Festival Missoula takes place in beautiful Caras Park in Missoula, alongside the Clark Fork River. Admission is Free.
