OCTOBER 2015
Introducing the Niagara Celtic Tartan
The Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival is the official owner of its own Tartan!

Colors:
Blue represents the festival being held along the shore of Great Lake Ontario, with all the colors representing the Celtic Nations which are celebrated at the festival, based on the modern flags of each country.

Restrictions:
The Niagara Celtic Festival Tartan has no use restrictions. This means the design can be used by festival participants and guests, helping everyone to feel like part of the Niagara Celtic family.

How Can it Be Used?
Our tartan can be used for fabric/ clothing items: kilts, skirts, dresses, ties, blankets, hats, shirts and more. At the current moment our tartan can be woven by any company- visit our website for a few options. 
 
We can't wait to see our tartan in use at next year's 16th festival! Learn More

Admission: $6 at the door

Join us and discover tales of old, which include hauntings from Ireland, Scotland and more origins of Halloween, or Samhain (pronounced SAH-win or SOW-in). Samhain is a Gaelic festival held on Nov. 1st, which marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year; it's the earliest origins of the holiday we celebrate today on Oct. 31st.

Guests will enjoy exploring a variety of thrilling locales, each with their own atmosphere and amazing tales of ghosts and spooks. The event is good for all ages, and is entirely indoors to keep you warm and safe. During your visit you can also create Halloween crafts, perfect for little ones. Families can join in the fun by coming in costume. Don't miss your chance to see this season in a brand new way!
