Goderich Celtic Roots Festival
The Goderich Celtic Roots Festival is an annual celebration of the music, craft, and culture of the seven Celtic nations, immigrants of which form a strong historic background to Huron County. From a single memorial concert held in 1993 to honour the life of a local teacher, the Celtic Roots Festival has grown to include a week-long school of music, dance and craft art for children and adults, known as the Celtic College, and a parallel school for children called the Celtic Kids Camp, a series of rural outreach mini-concerts, and a three-day traditional outdoor festival held in beautiful Lions' Harbour Park on the shores of Lake Huron, in Goderich, Ontario, Canada. The mandate of the Goderich Celtic Folk Society, our parent organization and a CRA registered charitable organization, is to produce events which foster awareness, participation, and education in the world of traditional Celtic culture.
