"Goderich is a town of spacious avenues, haunting generosity, wide smiles and open doors ... come walk the walk at the friendly festival."
~ Irish Music Magazine ~

The Goderich Celtic Roots Festival is an annual celebration of the music, craft, and culture of the seven Celtic nations, immigrants of which form a strong historic background to Huron County. From a single memorial concert held in 1993 to honour the life of a local teacher, the Celtic Roots Festival has grown to include a week-long school of music, dance and craft art for children and adults, known as the Celtic College, and a parallel school for children called the Celtic Kids Camp, a series of rural outreach mini-concerts, and a three-day traditional outdoor festival held in beautiful Lions' Harbour Park on the shores of Lake Huron, in Goderich, Ontario, Canada. The mandate of the Goderich Celtic Folk Society, our parent organization and a CRA registered charitable organization, is to produce events which foster awareness, participation, and education in the world of traditional Celtic culture.  

With five stages, varying from small intimate performances to the high-powered Main Stage, the Festival is a unique musical experience in Canada and on the world-wide stage. Fresh local food, high-quality craft artisans, art demonstrations, children's activity area, an evening market – and over 60 hours of live music – make this an unmissable weekend in Goderich.  A visit to the Festival is also a great way to experience Goderich, "the prettiest town in Canada", with the stunning beaches of Lake Huron and downtown shopping all within minutes' walk of the park.
