September 2016: Efforts to revive the Innisfil Celtic Festival did not succeed.
The Innisfil Celtic Festival, was initiated by a local resident in 2012 and ran for three years as a free community festival funded by sponsors and the Town. Cofounders left the organizing committee prior to last year’s event over “differences of opinion” with other committee members. Mayor Wauchope has been Festival Chair in 2015.
The 2014 event suffered from poor weather and organizers were unable to raise sufficient sponsorships and grants to host the event this year . A Public Meeting will be held to establish a 2016 Organizing Committee/Board for the Celtic Festival on Monday September 28th, 7p.m. at Innisfil Town Hall. Potential committee members or sponsors are encouraged to email their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
