The Maine Celtic Celebration is a family oriented celebration of the rich Celtic heritage, culture, and hospitality found along the coast of Maine. The event runs all weekend July 19 – 21, 2019 and offers traditional music and dancing on two stages located in Belfast's scenic bayside parks. Performers from near and far include: Genticorum, The John Byrne Band, Daymark, Doolally Dance Group, Gus LaCasse, the Anah Highlanders Pipe and Drum Band, Stillson Sisters Irish Dance, and The Galley Rats. Learn from these musicians and dancers at the Boathouse Workshops. Start Saturday at the Celtic Dog Parade and Show, watch sheepdog herding demonstrations in the afternoon, and end the day with fireworks over Belfast Bay. Visit the Artisan Village to see demonstrations of life in medieval Europe. Sunday afternoon's popular highlight is the New World Cheese Roll Championships, a series of competitive downhill races where participants chase a rolling wheel of cheese. Traditional Highland Heavy Games occupy Steamboat Landing all day Sunday. With food and craft vendors as well, there truly is something for everyone at the Maine Celtic Celebration.
