Welcome to the Water Valley Celtic Festival
The annual Water Valley Celtic Festival is a one day lively and totally unique experience that features talent of all levels involving music, dance and stories performed by individuals and groups covering the range from amateur to professional level. This festival is patterned after the festival held at Feakle, Co. Clare, Ireland, which was the inspiration for the festival's founder Dave Settles.
The festival is designed to promote traditional Celtic material and local talent. The Calgary area has many fine festivals that promote imported talent and contemporary music. This festival is not designed to compete with other events but rather to add another dimension to the Celtic entertainment choices . . . . including comfort!! This event is all inside or weather protected by tents.
You will find performances in different venues including the historic church, schoolhouse and on an old-time general store porch, all in the picturesque community of Water Valley.
