Welcome to the Maine Celtic Celebration


What a great evening was had at our Burns' Supper! We cannot begin to say how much we appreciate your support. We met some new friends, saw many familiar faces, and encountered some of our stalwarts. The whiskey flowed, the Haggis was rent, and the pipes sounded. Hopefully we did the bard proud. Click on Rabbie for a glimpse of the shenanigans. 

Special Thanks to:
Belfast Community Co-op, Bell the Cat, Ducktrap River, Fish Farm, Front Street Pub, Hannaford, Pineland Farms Dairy, ALL the volunteers, The Strayaways, and Jennifer Armstrong on pipes!

And to all who attended, THANK YOU!

Who We Are...

The Maine Celtic Celebration is a family-oriented weekend celebrating the rich Celtic heritage, culture, and hospitality found along the Coast of Maine.

The 2023 Celebration will be our 17th Annual event!  We are an all-volunteer group of community members and we are looking forward to our celebration this year!

Whether you are a new or veteran Celebration visitor, you will find lots of music and other attractions to keep you entertained, exercised and educated about all things Celtic!

The majority of our budget comes from donations from the local community.  We ask for a $15 suggested donation to be paid upon entry to the park to help us cover the costs of the show – 3 full days of music and events.  All ages are welcome!
