Irish & Celtic Music Festival 2023.   September 15th-17th 

The above weekend will see Yass Valley coming alive again.

This event will be our 4th festival to provide the community with an exceptional opportunity to witness and enjoy many arts from very talented performers. Music of many genres, Poetry performances and competitions, including for the young ones. Dance workshops plus the chance to put on your dancing shoes. Buskers may well be seen in the street. Workshops will be available for several instruments, singing and no doubt some sing-alongs will happen. There will be a quiz or two just for fun, so popular last year.
