October 8th to 16th is the time when Cape Breton Island is alive with the sound of fiddles, pipes and voices at Celtic Colours International Festival.
Last year, over 300 artists performed at 32 venues to the delight of more than 12,000 spectators. This event is held amidst the spectacular scenery of Cape Breton at the height of the island’s fall colours.
Celtic Colours International Festival 1999 promises to be the world’s ‘Celtic event of the year’. As we prepare for Celtic Colours 1999 we invite you and the world to… Come Ceilidh With Us!

“Looking for my roots, I found Magic in the people and in the music. I loved every second of being in Cape Breton and am still there in my heart”.Nancy MacLean Coppola “Words can’t describe Celtic Colours – it touches your very soul and must be experienced to be understood.”
“The performers, the people, the colours…where does one stop!?”
“The best festival – ever!”
