About
Saturate your senses in the sights, sounds, and tastes of Celtic heritage when the Ormond Beach Celtic Festival returns to Rockefeller Gardens with folk music, food, and fun from the seven Celtic Nations and beyond. Arriving this year on APRIL 20-21, 2024, this thirteen-year-old festival occupies two downtown parks along the Halifax River and fills them with multiple music stages, a Highland Games, clans, and Celtic societies from throughout the region as well as a host of other activities. Voted the Best Local Event in the News-Journal’s Readers Choice poll, and Best Arts, Culture & Heritage event by the Daytona Beach Area Visitors Convention & Bureau, the weekend attracts more than 10,000 locals and visitors each year. 
 
The south side of the Granada bridge in Rockefeller Gardens, festival-goers will find multiple stages of continuous music, plus a tent featuring jam sessions and master teachers, Celtic food, crafts and jewelry, and, of course, plenty of Guinness. 

Similarly, Fortunato Park, on the north side of the bridge, will be home to more music plus the Highland Games demonstrations and more. The Highland Games are sanctioned by the North American Scottish Games Athletics organization so its competitors rack up points toward the ultimate goal of competing in Scotland. More than 60 male and female athletes from around the region are expected to attend the Games and demonstrate their strength by throwing the caber, the hammer, or the stone put. 

There is plenty of free parking, including free off-site parking at Ormond Beach City Hall, 22 S. Beach St. with free shuttle service to allow everyone access to the Festival activities.
