It’s been a loooong time…….
The Committee of the ‘Irish & Celtic Music Festival’ look forward to welcoming all to Yass again.
September 16–18, is the weekend dedicated to our ‘Irish & Celtic Music Festival’, bringing us all together again.
We will celebrate traditional Celtic & Australian Arts all weekend.
There’ll be music across the different genres, workshops in music and instruments, dancing workshops and events on Saturday and Sunday.
There will also be a Poetry Soiree and 2 poets’ breakfasts, debate and competition.
Celtic Markets will take place on Saturday and Sunday, with a variety of foods, coffee and crafts.
Free live music and exhibitions will be found in Banjo Paterson Park.
Our beautiful Heritage buildings will be some of the venues, all well worthy of celebration.
Yass will be celebrating our rich cultural history while acknowledging the stunning Ngunnawal countryside and its peoples.
We pay our respects to the elders, past, present and emerging.
The Committee realise the need for flexibility during this festival as the infectious diseases take their toll on many people and events.
All will be encouraged to take hygiene requirements seriously to keep everyone as safe as possible, especially in confined areas.
We are determined to make the festival an enjoyable event.
We are excited to see our like minded friends and supporters after such a long time.
See you all soon!
