The Rio Grande Valley Celtic Association represents the united efforts of New Mexico’s Celtic community to celebrate and foster traditional Celtic culture of the 5 Nations: Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Brittany, Manx and Galicia. Each year, the Association hosts a Festival that engages Celtic dance, athletics, games, music, arts, history and oral traditions that promote Celtic heritage in New Mexico. As funding permits, grants are awarded for education of individuals or groups whose objective promotes Celtic heritage.
