About The Festival:

First founded in 1996, the KVMR Celtic Festival includes eleven performance areas including five musical and six demonstration stages and a weekend-long youth arts instruction that have included Celtic music, magic, dance, and songwriting.

The Festival is the main fundraising event of the year for KVMR Community Radio which operates as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) entity. Held in the early fall, the festival regularly draws over 7,000 attendees for the two days and the promotional outreach extends throughout KVMR’s listening area including a worldwide live streaming broadcast over the internet through iTunes and the KVMR website.

We continue to bring international performers to Nevada County and showcase an ever-increasing cadre of regional talent including musicians, dancers, and performing artists of every type.

Each year, the festival provides a professional performance venue for many young student musicians and dancers to perform in front of a live audience and hone their craft.  Workshops and sessions are held throughout the event to provide musicians of every age and caliber an opportunity to learn from each other in a synergistic and fun atmosphere.

Funds for the festival are raised through sponsorships, vendor fees, ticket sales, program advertising, and beverage sales.  The festival is produced by a team of over 300 volunteers who generously donate their time and energy year after year, plus KVMR’s small staff.

Your support of the Celtic Festival is a partnership with KVMR Community Radio that keeps independent, noncommercial media alive and well in the world.

We are honored to be able to continue to bring the music and magic of the Celtic genre to our community.
