As restrictions have ramped up and covid-19 case numbers increase in the province, festival organizers for the annual traditional music celebration are re-scheduling the Festival until late summer. KitchenFest!/Féis a’ Chidsin! was originally slated to take place June 25 to July 4, 2021, the unofficial ceilidh season kick-off on the island. Organizers have now set it for August 27-September 4.
The annual celebration of Cape Breton-based Gaelic music gives locals and visitors alike insight into this distinct and vibrant living culture, bringing the kitchen-ceilidh feel to the forefront. Fiddles and bagpipes, concerts and céilidhs, food and drink, Gaelic language and song, informality and hospitality — consider this your official invitation to Cape Breton’s biggest kitchen céilidh!
Full festival information coming late spring, 2021.
