Almonte Celtfest is Going Green

Refillable water stations available throughout the park Festival weekend


June 23, 2014 Almonte, ON – This year’s Almonte Celtfest is going green.  With a commitment to the environment, the Festival wants to play their part reducing waste.  With the assistance of Lanark Pure and the Ontario Clean Water Agency, refillable water stations will be available throughout the park.  Additionally, to reduce waste RBC’s Blue Water Project has donated 500 refillable water bottles to be distributed over the weekend.

“Almonte Celtfest is a great family event that has come to be well recognized in our community and beyond, we felt it was important for us to take a lead in helping to clean up the environment.  The Committee had the idea but it’s really the water sponsors and RBC that helped to make it happen” said Chair Brenda Cain-Kealey.

Almonte Celtfest began in 1997 as a Sunday afternoon event that has grown into one of the top Celtic weekend events in the Country. Its mission is to celebrate and promote the Celtic heritage of the Ottawa Valley, share historical traditions and showcase local performers. Celtfest takes place in the natural amphitheatre of Gemmill Park over the July 4, 5 and 6th, 2014 weekend and remains an admission by donation event.
