Frequently Asked Questions
What is the status of the festival during the pandemic?
We postponed the 2020 festival. With vaccinations and life beginning to show signs of a somewhat return to normalcy we are now focusing our efforts on holding a open to the public safe 2021 Pikes Peak Celtic Festival, which will be held June 18-20, 2021.
What actions will be taken at the festival to keep everyone safe?
The 2021 Pikes Peak Celtic Festival will still have rules and policies in place to encourage a safe environment for everyone to enjoy the festivities. While our plan will adapt as we approach the festival, attendees can expect to have safety protocols in place across the festival that may include mandatory masks, temperature stations, and crowding limitations.
Are my 2020 registrations still good?

If you purchased a ticket or registered for a booth or activity at the festival in 2020, your registration was automatically transferred to 2021.

The Pikes Peak Celtic Festival blossomed from an old tradition in Colorado Springs. 1999 marked the last year of the Pikes Peak Highland Games. In 2013, we brought this festival back under the new name-Pikes Peak Celtic Festival.
The Festival field will be filled with the sound of Bagpipes, the smell of fish & chips, the sight of world champion Irish dancers, and events/activities for every age. Come out to see the massed bagpipe bands of the Western United States Pipe Band Association. Come see world renowned Celtic Rock groups. See and learn tradition Irish and Highland dancing. Taste the best in Irish and Scottish cuisine. The Pikes Peak Celtic Festival will be the main attraction of the year.
