Our Mission

To celebrate nature through music, dance and the arts.

To celebrate the common historical roots that the traditional music of Québec and the rest of Canada share with music from Ireland, Scotland and Brittany.

To offer a biennial gathering place for the general public and Celtic artists from here and abroad, a major inter-Celtic cultural and musical event in North America.

Festival Objectives

  • To present quality entertainment
  • To provide opportunities for people to reconnect with nature through the arts
  • To provide opportunities for people to discover the Eastern Townships and its places, eateries and activities that promote “the Art of Living”
  • To help people to slow down*

*“Slow” in this context means doing everything at the right speed. That implies quality over quantity; real and meaningful human connections; being present and in the moment.” Carl Honoré
