The Tucson Celtic Festival Association, (TCFA), a non-profit organization run by volunteers, is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of the rich heritage of customs and traditions of all Celtic peoples (Scottish, Irish, Welsh and British) within our greater Tucson community by promoting Celtic Cultural awareness and appreciation of diversity. We have produced an annual Tucson Celtic Festival and Scottish Highland Games for over 30 years. The festival provides a gathering place for those interested in Celtic Culture where they may participate in and enjoy various Celtic arts, traditional dress, crafts, foods, vendors, music, dance, literature, language and athletics in the form of demonstrations, reenactments, performances and competitions.
National and International organizations such as Scottish Clans and Celtic Cultural Societies are invited to attend and set up educational and informational booths. It’s a great place to renew old friendships and make new ones, enjoy the music, pipebands, dancers, and some great food treats. All in all, a festival atmosphere of fun and adventure prevails!
In addition, we host other great Celtic events like Robert Burns Night, Tartan Day Scottish Festival and Welsh Day. We are an all-volunteer organization and love what we do! We are always looking for new members to join us in our endeavors.
