The Rio Grande Valley Celtic Festival puts forth quality Celtic music from local and surrounding-area musicians. We have our main headline bands - Mac Gilliossa and Spirited Lads - on the Main Stage as well as local bands and musicians on our Small Stage. You can find our Beard Contest on Saturday afternoon over in the Clans area. Our registered Celtic Dogs are on display over on the north side of the field, and you can either watch them parade through once a day in the mornings or you can see them walking with their owners throughout the day. We have our Athletics displays going on in different areas throughout the Festival - Scottish Highland Games can be found on the south side of the Festival both Saturday and Sunday, Saturday has Rugby 7's going on all day on the northwest area, and Strongman Competition can be found on the northwest area on Sunday. You can find our bagpipers, along with the Piper's Pub, on the southwest part of the Festival. Don't miss our Massed Bands every day at 12 noon! Our Dance Tent is located in the middle of our Festival, along "Main Street", and they feature both Scottish and Irish dancing.
