CelticFest Mississippi simply wouldn’t be a festival without its vendors! For the festival go-er we want you to have the perfect experience so in addition to the multiple stages of music, dance, workshops, athletics & live animal exhibits, there are a variety of Celtic and specialty item vendors. And if you’re hungry, there are also plenty of food and drink vendors to keep your belly happy!

The Celtic Heritage Society booth is where you can get information and purchase Raffle Tickets, CelticFest MS T-Shirts, Performer CDs and Merchandise as well as where you get your Beer & Wine Tickets.

Festival Hours 2020:

Friday: 5:00pm-10pm
Sat: 10:00am-11:30pm

Information for Vendors

CelticFest

Our purpose is to provide both an educational and entertaining festival experience. We accomplish this by bringing together national caliber headliners, the best regional Celtic musicians, dancers, artists and athletes as well as quality vendors and special events.  We limit the number of vendors carrying similar products because we want you to be successful.  We’ve enjoyed consistent growth since our first festival in 1991 and welcome the challenge to continue to expand and improve. Vendors will be assigned booth locations, all of which are in high traffic areas located outside.  Rain or Shine.
