GREETINGS
As Minister of Canadian Heritage, I am
pleased to support CelticFest. I would
like to thank the organizers and many
volunteers who ensure that this festival
continues to celebrate and promote Celtic
culture and enrich the lives of Canadians of
all backgrounds.
As Premier of the Province
of British Columbia, I
am pleased to welcome
everyone to the 12th
annual CelticFest and St.
Patrick’s Day Parade, here
in Vancouver.
On behalf of my colleagues
on
Vancouver
City
Council and the citizens of
Vancouver, I want to extend
my sincere best wishes
for a successful 2016
CelticFest Vancouver.
Enjoy the festival!
The Honourable Mélanie Joly
CeticFest has become a
favourite for many in Vancouver and allows
us to experience a variety of cultures. It
is a wonderful opportunity for local and
international artists and audiences to
participate in artistic expression ranging
from music and dance to workshops and
a parade. The festival is a perfect blend
of art and culture that showcases the
multiculturalism we are proud of in our city.
This year’s CelticFest promises to be
an exciting and entertaining event as
local and international members of the
Celtic community gather to highlight their
culture through an incredible line-up of
performances and presentations. British
Columbia is fortunate to be a diverse and
welcoming province, where we can share
in the art and traditions of different cultures.
This festival will be a wonderful mix of
invigorating music, dancing, presentations
and excellent food in the good company of
family and friends.

As one of the festival’s
founding sponsors, the
Downtown
Vancouver
Business
Improvement
Association
is
proud
to welcome CelticFest
Vancouver for its 12th
Anniversary. This festival,
which attracts over 200,000 attendees
annually, has firmly established a strong
Celtic tradition that appeals to lovers
of music, dance, performance, libations
and crafts.
CelticFest Vancouver is a
non-profit society that is all
about the Celtic community.
We have so many partners
and stakeholders who
contribute to the success of
the festival, that we realize
that CelticFest Vancouver
belongs to everyone.
Our CelticFest management and staff, as
well as the hundreds of volunteers, step
up every year with great enthusiasm.
We have partners from all levels of
government who recognize that CelticFest
brings cultural and economic benefits to
Vancouver. Our corporate sponsors know
that they too are partners in promoting our
Celtic heritage. We are grateful for their
continuing confidence and support in our
work.
CelticFest Vancouver is a wonderful way
to celebrate the diversity, excitement and
uniqueness of Vancouver. It is a wonderful
event for families, of all ages, with many
free events, including the St. Patrick’s
Day Parade on March 13th. Best of all,
most of the festival programming takes
place in the heart of the city – downtown
Vancouver.
Our Board of Directors provides ongoing
guidance and support. Our artists deliver
magnificently every time! And you, the
audience, are why we do this. Take a bow
and enjoy!
Enjoy all the festival has to offer.

As Canadians, we enjoy
every
opportunity
to
explore the many cultures
that enrich our national
identity. For more than a
decade, CelticFest and the
St. Patrick’s Day parade in
Vancouver have provided
many such opportunities.
The festival has brought people of all
ages together to celebrate Celtic heritage
through arts, culture and sport. And the
St. Patrick’s Day parade has encouraged
all residents and visitors to Vancouver to
share in some Irish pride.
