Countdown to 2019!
The Dunedin Celtic Music & Craft Beer Festival presented by the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation is an annual event centered around Traditional and Contemporary Celtic music and both local and national craft beer. The 2019 festival will feature music by Off Kilter, Seven Nations, City of Dunedin Pipe Band, Bad Haggis, and Leahy from Cape Breton! The bands page is in the process of getting updated now.
NEW this year: We are taking our Craft Beer to a whole new level!!! We are having a special Craft Brew Village with over 50 craft beers and ciders from around the area! This new event within an event is only $20 extra with your paid admission. Unlimited 4 oz samples for 4 hours! You can purchase this additional ticket below or on the Tickets page.
This is a RAIN or SHINE outdoor festival featuring multiple musical acts ALL DAY! Each year the main stage features regional, national, and international Celtic music artists along with the City of Dunedin Pipe Band. We also give the Dunedin High School and Dunedin Middle School bands the opportunity to perform in the afternoon on the Pavilion Stage.

This is NOT a pet friendly event! As much as we love animals, the festival is loud, and there are tons of people we need to keep safe. Please leave your animals at home where they'll have a much better time!
We're excited to partner with Dunedin's historic Fenway Hotel (a Marriott Autograph collection), and they're offering a special rate to our Celtic Festival attendees. Check out our Lodging page for more information!
We have many opportunities available and encourage you to participate in as many as you are able. Your volunteer shift will earn you complimentary entry to the festival, a volunteer t-shirt, as well as one cold beverage of your choice once your shift is completed.
