January 2012

It's Niagara Celtic's 13th year, and we're ready to celebrate like never before! We're hard at work making everything perfect, and for the first time we'll be including new additions and updates chosen by our guests! Each monthly newsletter through September will contain the latest in news and announcements for this year, so you'll always be the first to know what we're planning.

What's the news for this January? In 2012, Niagara Celtic was split into Regions, something that will allow easier navigation through the grounds. This year, look for even more additions to each region, allowing you to identify easily where you are at any given moment, while enjoying everything each one has to offer. To view the 2012 Regions Map online, visit:  niagaraceltic.com/fest_map.html.

See you next month!
