Online applications are open now for performers, traders and volunteers wanting to be part of the 2024 Australian Celtic Festival in Glen Innes, NSW.

Just four months ago, Glen Innes experienced its biggest-ever Australian Celtic Festival, with over 6,000 attendees taking part in the four-day celebration of Celtic heritage and culture.  

With planning well underway for the festival’s 32nd year, which will highlight the Celtic nations of Ireland and the Isle of Man, event organisers are calling for applications from anyone keen to be part of the annual festivities between Thursday, 2 May and Sunday, 5 May 2024.

“Whether you’re an aspiring artist, dancer, performer, musician or band with a Celtic vibe, a passionate clan or society, a live-action or re-enactment group, wanting to have a stall at the festival markets, keen to enter a competition or present a workshop, or interested in volunteering, there are so many ways to get involved,” Glen Innes Severn Council’s Tourism and Events Officer Rhonda Bombell said. 

“Last year was our biggest year in terms of the number of attendees who flocked to our iconic festival site of the Australian Standing Stones National Celtic Monument, and we hope to continue the momentum and elevate that experience yet again through an exciting program of events and attractions.

“The last time we celebrated Ireland and the Isle of Man was in 2021 and we were restricted with what we could do post-pandemic. We are very excited to give these Celtic nations a huge celebration this time, for which we’ll need expressions of interest from a broad range of suppliers to successfully deliver this premier event,” said Bombell.
