Melbourne Celtic Festival – 17 March 2021

 Melbourne Celtic Festival will return in 2021

As we look to assist Bushfire affected communities through the fundraiser the Melbourne Celtic Festival, The Mission to Seafarers Board and the Festival organisers have made the very tough decision to postpone the event due to the COVID-19 risk at public events. Our first priority is the safety of everyone including attendees, our personnel, all event partners and members of the local community.

The Melbourne Celtic Festival is coming to the Mission this St Patrick’s Day – 17 March 2021.

Join us for a celebration of Celtic Arts & Culture
