HISTORIC KILMORE COUNTRY

Historic Kilmore is located just 60 km north of Melbourne on the Northern Highway (B75). Acknowledged as Victoria's oldest inland settled town. It was a stronghold of early Celtic settlers from Ireland, Scotland and Cornwall, and remains a strong Celtic area until this day.

The Kilmore Celtic Festival is our tribute to these early settlers and we would like to celebrate their influence on the area in a presentation of Celtic tradition, with the emphasis on the fun-filled music and dance which they have left for our enjoyment. One of the many great Celtic Festivals in Australia, it includes folk and Celtic music, markets, musical instrument workshops and dance.

We welcome you to Kilmore, to share with us the pleasure of these traditions in a spirit of friendship and good old-fashioned country hospitality. So, why not rug up and join with us for a truly Celtic winter festival. The festival occurs on the last Sunday of June, around many other folk festivals in Victoria.
