With a program that highlights the arts – music, song, dance, theatre, play-write, sessions, workshops, trad talk, masterclasses and more, this festival attracts audiences and performers from across the country and around the world.

The National Celtic Festival is held at Portarlington in Victoria, Australia. It is 105 kilometres from Melbourne and 30 kilometres from Geelong. Take the Portarlington Road from Geelong and enjoy the beautiful scenery and wineries on the way.
