spanish peaks international celtic music festival

September 22 - 25, 2022

The Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival (SPICMF) is a Celtic music festival, but really so much more.  We are more accurately a four-day ‘destination-retreat’ where internationally respected artists and scholars not only perform in concert, but share their musical talent and knowledge in a full range of upwards of fifty-plus workshops, demonstration talks, and open (free) singing, dancing, and playing sessions for all.  In addition, we provide musical and cultural education at no charge to the schools in our county.
