A ONE-DAY CELEBRATION OF THE CELTIC MUSIC, DANCE, CRAFT, AND ART THAT HAS FOUND A HOME IN THE STATE OF MAINE!
We are committed to representing authentic folk traditions in an inclusive and balanced lineup. You won’t find any Celtic Rock at the Little Sea Folk Festival, but you will hear and play the very best of authentic Irish, Scottish, Quebecois, Cape Breton, Americana, Bluegrass, and Acoustic Folk - just to name a few! You’ll also join in dance classes, language lessons, craft workshops, sport demonstrations, theatrical performances, song circles, open sessions, and so much more. We hope you’ll join us for Portland, Maine’s newest favorite tradition!
You can count on world-class musical performances from noon until 10pm as well as dance classes, a session, language workshops, singing circles, craft demonstrations, theatrical performances, children’s programming, food, beverage, music workshops and master classes, sport demonstration, and so much more.
Our pop-up festival moves to Woodfords Church in 2019 after a wonderful inaugural year at the Maine Irish Heritage Center. The new facility boasts ample parking, multiple separate spaces for performances and workshops, a wood dance floor, and proximity to a number of wonderful local businesses to support! We’re thrilled to partner with this organization to present this year’s festival events.
