Keltfest moves to a new location!

As of 2018 Keltfest will be held at the beautiful recreation area Groene Weelde in Vijfhuizen (municipality of Haarlemmermeer). This new terrain offers Vana Events the opportunity to further expand Keltfest as the Celtic event of the Netherlands. Among other things a festival camping and bagpipe competitions will be new components of the festival program. 

Keltfest attracts nearly 10000 tourists annually and offers visitors to experience the Celtic era. With craftsmanship, workshops like archery and forging, demo’s, an extensive market and lots of children activities, the festival offers something for everyone.  


The musical line-up has many folk bands programmed on several stages and with a pint in hand you imagine yourself in a Irish pub. Everyone is invited to join in on one of many pub sessions or fill your stomach with delicious authentic food that is on offer by various caterers. 

In 2017 Keltfest celebrated its 10th edition in the Hollandse Biesbosch. Vana Events hopesto bring this Celtic festival to new heights by moving to the Groene Weelde in Vijfhuizen.
