Celtic Colours

The Celtic Colours International Festival is held all over Cape Breton. It is annual event scheduled to start in October on the Friday of each Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. There are scores of events planned. They include Local Food, Community Meals, Farmer’s Market, Learning, Outdoor, Gaelic Language, Participatory and Visual Arts experiences. This year the entire Festival runs from Friday October 5 to Saturday October 13, 2018.

St. Peter’s is proud to host one of the featured events. St. Peter’s is also ideally situated as a hub to visit other featured events all within a  short 35 minute drive. Why not put a multiple day itinerary that allows you to enjoy both the attractions in and around St. Peter’s as well as the more of Celtic Colours International Festival. I list os shown below as well as a link to the Celtic Colours International Festival site.
