Northeast Louisiana Celtic Festival Facebook Page

The Kiroli Foundation is returning with its annual NELA Celtic Festival. This year's festival will be held Kiroli Park in West Monroe on Saturday, October 2 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will feature live musical performances from various bands and artists such as Murder the Stout, Reel Treble, Emerald Accent, Beth Patterson, and Dead Reckoning. 

Adrian Wells, main street director of West Monroe, is very proud for the return of this year's Celtic Festival and happy to be able to share this event with people from all the surrounding areas. "We do invite everyone since it is family friendly so bring the kids and settle in for a great day of music and crafts that are fun for everyone." 

Admission is $5 for those 12 years old and up. Food trucks and activities will be available on site as well as beer to those 21 and older being provided by local business Flying Heart Brewing & Pub. 

For more information, you can follow the NELA Celtic Festival page on Facebook. 

The NELA Celtic Festival seeks to preserve the rich Celtic heritage, traditions and lore of Northeast Louisiana.
