Berry Celtic Festival
The Knights are Back for the 13th Annual Berry Celtic Festival
– Saturday 25 May
The Berry Celtic Festival this year highlights the Celtic nation of “Ireland” and introduces a number of additional features to the Program. Along with a day full of entertainment including the spectacular jousting medieval knights, there are various workshops for Irish dancing, traditional tunes for kids, Gaelic singing, instrumental sessions along with country dance. For those with energy still to burn following the Festival, you can dance the night away at the Berry Celtic Festival Dance.
Jousting has been one of the real hits with Berry Celtic Festival goers in recent years and is full of excitement. Heavily armoured noble knights gallop at each other on horseback with a clashing of lances, aiming to unseat their opponent. You can hear the thunder of hooves. And in the background, other knights resplendent in shining armour will be staging battles in hand to hand combat demonstrating skillful swordplay.
The Berry Celtic Festival kicks off with the grand street parade through Berry at 9.30am, with pipe bands marching in all of their distinctive kilts, together with representatives of the all of the Clans, medieval knights, and Scottish Terrier dogs, making their way to Berry Showground.
Come see the marching of the massed bands, musical items, Celtic fiddlers, highland dancing, enchanted singing, and of course, the battle of the medieval knights.
Entry is $10 for adults, with children under 15 years free.
