Thousands Flock To Celebrate Cape Breton Island’s Celtic Colours

July 25, 2014 Destination North America No Comments Email Email

For nine days in October, Cape Breton Island in Canada’s maritime province of Nova Scotia will play host to a unique celebration of music and culture at the annual Celtic Colours International Festival, one of Canada’s premier musical events.

A celebration of colour, dance, art and heritage, Celtic Colours features hundreds of musicians from all over the world, introducing the intense musical culture of Cape Breton Island to tens of thousands of visitors since its inception in 1997.

Celtic Colour is spread across the Island with revellers bouncing from one place to another to attend concerts, workshops and visual exhibitions in communities where the Celtic culture has been nurtured for more than 200 years, through story-telling and music, providing a rich context for the entertainment.

Taking place from 10 – 18 October 2014, venues for Celtic Colours will vary from an 18th Century reconstructed French Chapel to state-of-the-art performance centres.

Cape Breton Island is the perfect backdrop for the celebrations, held at a time when the autumn leaves are at their most brilliant and travelling around the island offers one breathtaking view after another. Visitors to Cape Breton Island will be blown away by the pristine Bras d’Or Lakes, Canada’s largest saltwater lake, and the Cabot Trail, often called North America’s most scenic drive.
