The Dunedin Celtic Music & Craft Beer Festival presented by the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation is an annual event centred around Traditional and Contemporary Celtic music and both local and national craft beer. The 2019 festival will feature music by Off Kilter, Seven Nations, Bad Haggis, City of Dunedin Pipe Band, and Leahy from Cape Breton.

NEW this year: We are taking our Craft Beer to a whole new level!!! We are having a special Craft Brew Village with over 50 craft beers and ciders from around the area! This new event within an event is only $20 extra with your paid admission. Unlimited 4 oz samples for 4 hours!.

This festival is held every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving and is a day filled with a wide variety of music, dancing, craft beer, food, and Celtic crafts & merchandise. This is a rain or shine outdoor festival beginning at 11 am and going until 9 pm. Each year the main stage features National and International Celtic music artists and bands along with the World Champion City of Dunedin Pipe Band, Dunedin Scottish Highlander High School Band and Dunedin Highland Middle School Band. We offer a great selection of Celtic crafts from regional and local artisans. Of course, there is nothing that goes better with craft beer than food! Each year we have food vendors serving up traditional Celtic cuisine, good ole American BBQ, and much much more. Bring a friend, a lawn chair, and enjoy the music, the craft beer and a great day in Dunedin.
