The Kelly Girls are hitting the road again this weekend to continue their New England Tour. Belfast Maine is host to one of the regions largest and most attended Celtic festivals, Maine Celtic Celebration. In fact, K-Girls are helping to start off the festivities with a special 2:00 pm Friday Show at the Crosby Center, a performance funded by the New England States Touring program of the New England Foundation for the Arts (NEST). This show is for seniors and anyone in the community to attend.
Saturday at 1:30, The Kelly Girls take the main stage, nestled among fabulous dancers, fiddlers, and other bands. On Sunday at 1:15, they’ll be on the Steamboat Stage leading a traditional song circle.
Lot’s of other festivities happen throughout the weekend including highland games, activities for the kids, various workshops and lots of food and shopping too!
The Celebration takes place at two adjacent parks in downtown Belfast, Steamboat Landing, and Belfast Common. Steamboat Landing is a 2.5-acre flat grassy park right on the waterfront and serves as the southern terminus of the Belfast Harbor Walk. It includes the park, a gazebo, and The Boathouse. Belfast Common is located just uphill from Steamboat Landing, on a large, open hillside that overlooks Belfast Bay and provides a natural seating area for our Main Stage, with the beautiful bay as the backdrop. Directions and additional info here.

Hope we’ll see you in Belfast, Maine July 20, 21 & 22, 2018.
