The Maine Celtic Celebration is held every July at two adjacent parks, the Belfast Common and Steamboat Landing, in downtown Belfast, Maine. Three days of the festival are filled with fun for all, live music, workshops, the Celtic dog show, 5K run, Highland Heavy Games, the New World Cheese Roll, and fireworks. There is also a fair with souvenirs and food vendors.
Some $10 per person is a suggested donation that can be made at the entrance. The festival starts on Friday afternoon and ends on Sunday at about 5:30 p.m.
The Maine Celtic Celebration is dedicated to rich Celtic heritage and culture on the coast of Maine. Belfast and the vicinity were founded and built by immigrants from Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Isle of Man, Cornwall, and Brittany. One of the founders—John Miller—named Belfast after his hometown.
