Birds of Prey

The Sudbury Celtic Festival was founded in 2008 during the Greater Sudbury 125 Anniversary Celebrations. The festival aims to promote and preserve the rich cultural traditions in Greater Sudbury given the Heritage Roots in our city and cross cultural influences of Scottish, Irish, Metis, First Nations, Welsh, Franco-Ontario and French Canadian Cultures.
Throughout the year many events in addition to the festival are held in the community to celebrate traditions such as Robbie Burns Day, St. Patrick`s Day, Tartan Day, and St. Andrew`s Day which are significant events on the Celtic Calendar. The festival also collaborates with other groups such as Fiddleworks, Café Music, Northern Lights Festival Boreal, and local cultural organizations to support regional heritage and folklore.
