Participatory Events

Bring your guitar or fiddle, engage your voices, swing your partner – all participatory events are geared for your inclusion. In these cases you are welcome as a spectator or as part of the program, as community square dances, sessions, and kitchen rackets give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the action.

Below are all of the Participatory Events we presented during Celtic Colours 2013 in chronological order. This list is now for illustration purposes only. 2014′s artist, concert and community cultural event lineups will be announced on Monday, June 23rd and tickets will go on sale on Monday, July 7th 2014.
