CELTIC ROOTS ROCK!
The 8th Annual CelticFest Vancouver, March 10th to 18th delivers its best celebration of Celtic music, dance and culture to date, with a jam-packed schedule of nearly 70 free and ticketed concerts and events over six days. The festival is thrilled to again call the downtown Vancouver Entertainment District home, but is excited to be branching out this year with a special pre-festival sneak peek free event on March 10th at The Village on False Creek called Celts on the Creek. For lovers of all things Celtic (and who is not), CelticFest 2012 is already looking to be one of the most amazing festivals yet.

CelticFest Vancouver is Western Canada’s biggest annual Celtic festival. CelticFest is a rich cultural celebration of the seven Celtic nations’ kinship and community. The festival showcases the best of Celtic music, dance, spoken word as well as film, foodand fare and the much-anticipated St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Founded in 2004, the cornerstones of CelticFest Vancouver are community, diversity, family and civic pride. CelticFest draws its artistic direction from some 5,000 years of Celtic history and culture. This young, vibrant event has quickly, and firmly, established itself as an annual springtime tradition in downtown Vancouver.
Since inception, CelticFest’s attendance has significantly grown year over year, drawing 250,000+ in 2008. With 99 stories about CelticFest resulting in over 8.2 million impressions, media coverage of the event has also increased dramatically.
In 2008, more than 2,000 people marched in the 5th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade. The five-day festival also featured 60 performances and events – 70% of them free – staged by 150 volunteers and supported by 50 generous businesses and organizations as well as all three levels of Government.
