25th Year for the Festival of the Island

This year marks the 25th year for Féis an Eilein – and boy, we couldn’t be more excited! We have a whole host of activities planned throughout the summer months, from concerts to workshops to lessons for one and all. You won’t want to miss this wonderful celebration with friends and families as everyone gathers back home to celebrate together at the festival they grew up attending. We are thrilled to welcome new visitors to take-in and participate in all our festival events. 

We want to invite you to join in our anniversary celebrations! Come ceilidh with us at our Open House on Wednesday, August 19th starting at 7:30pm. It will be a celebration of Féis an Eilein’s successful presentation and promotion of Gaelic language and cultural programming over the past 25 years. We will have local entertainment and tea and lunch will be served. 

Some other highlights include: A Walk through The Glen and The Féis Week Concert (8pm) on August 18th, Gabh do Naidheachd on August 21st and the Family Round and Squaredance (9pm) on August 22nd.

Thank you to the Christmas Island Volunteer Fire Department for your continuous support of our efforts to promote the Gaelic language and its cultural art-forms. We also wish to thank each and every one of you, our participants and our contributors, for your support of the Féis for the past 25 years. Many thanks are extended to all our volunteers who make the presentation of our events possible, and thanks also to our sponsors.
