The Knights, all the bands, all the Clans, medieval villagers, singing and dancing will be back at the 2023 Berry Celtic Festival Saturday 27 May. It will be a day full of entertainment.
Come see what medieval life was like in Celtic times. The Berry Celtic Festival steps off at 9.30am with a Grand Street Parade of pipe bands marching in their distinctive kilts, together with representatives of all the Clans, medieval knights, and Scottish Terrier dogs. The Parade proceeds down the main street of Berry and on to the Berry Showground where the rest of the day’s activities are held.
At the Showground you’ll see the marching of the massed bands, musical items, Celtic fiddlers, highland dancing, enchanted singing, and of course, the battles of the medieval knights.
The heavily armoured noble knights on horseback joust one another to see who is the last one standing. You’ll hear the thunder of the hooves as horses charge at one another with the jousting knights aiming their lances at each other. It is full of excitement.
Other knights resplendent in shining armour re-live battles in hand-to-hand combat demonstrating their skillful swordplay.
The Berry Celtic Festival is a fundraising endeavour of the Rotary Club of Berry and 2023 will be the 16th staging of this event. We thank Shoalhaven City Council and all our Sponsors.
