In the Beach Village of Toronto , it’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, not the kids going back to school, but the Annual Beach Celtic Festival, Toronto’s only outdoor ceildh in beautiful Kew Gardens. So sing along "At the 12th Celtic Festival: Sandy Graham brought to us; one pipe band piping, Bold Step Dancers dancing, Old Man Flanagan’s Ghost entertaining, Don Graham a-strumming, Caledon County singing, Métis Fiddlers fiddlin’, vendors selling cool stuff, adults and children smiling, and all at a great Scottish price..IT’S FREE.”

There now, you are in the mood to celebrate all things Celtic on September 12th and 13th in the park. Founder, creative director, organizer, talent manager, weather watcher and all around overseer Sandy Graham is all smiles when talking about this year’s presentation.

“Every year I get to honour and celebrate my Mum with this lively gathering that would make her proud. For two days every September Mum is walking the park with us and enjoying the fun, food and music that would remind her of her home in “the old country.” This year we are honoured to dedicate the festival to the loving memory of ‘Big’ Harry MacGregor our loyal and steadfast supporter for many years.”

Bold Step DancersBold Step DancersThis year’s lineup is to be filled with a wide variety of talent starting with choreographer Meghan Bold’s Bold Step Dancers, one of the finest Scottish Dance troupes in the city and a not to be missed experience. Bold by name and bold by nature, Meghan has never been shy about taking a big step and every year, we are so pleased to have her talented troupe of Highland Dancers who also present an amazing presentation of what is known as Step Dancing originally taken from the Ottawa Valley settlers. Bold Step Dance Studios is located in the heart of the Beach and accepts students of all ages. Bold Step Dancers are part of the Beach Celtic Festival Clan and help us to celebrate with the festival every year.
