VENDOR & SCOTTISH CLAN REGISTRATION

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN FOR 2022 FEBRUARY

CelticFest

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, purchase Raffle Tickets, CelticFest MS Merch & T-Shirts, as well as where you get your Beer Tickets.
