I hope that this list will not grow too large but there are always festivals which fade away over the years. Sometimes due to mismanagement, sometimes to uncooperative weather but usually due to the lack of support from corporate sponsors and patrons. Make sure to get out to the festivals and show your support!!

The second annual Celtic Nations Festival in Vacaville, California took place on June 26 and 27, 2004. Unfortunately, there will not be a third annual festival due to inadequate funds.

The Celtic Fling and Highland Games in Palmetto, Florida which was to take place on February 19 and 20, 2005, has been postponed until further notice.

The Rio Grande Valley Celtic Festival and Highland Games in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Last festival took place on May 14 and 15, 2004

Thanks for keeping us posted on this Keltic. I know it will help a lot of people - what a great idea. It is a shame that these events close down due to lack of funding. Hopefully this list will not get too long!

TEXAS - Corpus Christi


Apparently, the South Texas Celtic Music Festival is reorganizing and will hopefully re-emerge under the umbrella of the South Texas Celtic Music Association. According to the website (http://www.southtexascelticfestival.org/), there are no events scheduled for 2005 which means that the festival that was previously listed as taking place on November 12, 2005, is not happening.

Due to Hurricane Katrina, the 2005 Highlands and Islands Scottish Games, previously scheduled to take place on November 12 and 13, have been cancelled. The next games will be held in November 2006. http://www.highlandsandislands.org/

Sarnia Highland Games


Although, 2005 saw a record number of competitors, the number of spectators has dwindled. Fund-raising efforts fell short and therefore, the Sarnia Highland Games, originally slated to take place on August 18 and 19, 2006 in Sarnia, Ontario will not be held. They will try to find the funding and hopefully return for 2007. Press release can be viewed on their website - http://www.sarniahighlandgames.com
