Join the Craic In Yass!
Yass is the ideal location for a music festival, set in a delightful rural valley, with a heritage rich in Irish and Celtic beginnings. A mostly walking precinct sets the scene in town for music, poetry, dance, Celtic markets and good CRAIC, in unique venues, many serving an excellent variety of food, great coffee and liquid refreshments to suit all. Historical buildings will surround you, with beautiful parks to enjoy. As the third oldest town in NSW, it has lots to offer, especially the wonderful community.
The Irish & Celtic Music Festival committee is run by local volunteers from the Yass Valley. During the festival we are supported by volunteers from across the country.
