The festivities begin Thursday night with the Filum event. CelticFest proper is under full sail on Friday evening, finishing up Sunday evening.
An ever popular highlight of CelticFest, the massive Cil Mr Dance (pronounced kay-lee) caps off the Saturday night with three shifts of live music. They dont turn out like this in Ireland! This is astounding!, said Eoin Verling of the Fuchsia Band.
In addition to stage performances, the weekend is full of opportunities to participate and learn at one of the many free music, dance, or cultural workshops. WorkCoyne and Verlingshops are generally conducted by CelticFest performers and are geared towards general audiences with an interest in the topic.
