Portland is getting a Celtic music festival this year

The Saltwater Celtic Music Festival, usually held in the summertime up in Brunswick, is coming to Portland in the fall.

The Saltwater Celtic Music Festival, usually held in the summertime up in Brunswick, is coming to Portland in the fall.

The folks at the annual Saltwater Celtic Music Festival announced this morning that they are moving the show from Brunswick to Portland for the 2014 show. They’re also changing the date from summer to fall.

After a great deal of soul-searching and planning, the Saltwater Celtic Music Festival is moving, in time and space, to the first weekend of October, 2014 and to downtown Portland, Maine. Great friends at Thomas Point Beach will be missed but the move to a one-ticket, multiple-venue format will allow us to grow Saltwater and to offer the broadest spectrum of performers and activities. More info, including venue and performer bookings, will be reported in our newsletter and will be posted here. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
