Dancers from the audience

Festival of Celtic Culture at Dowspuda

The festival is held in August and lasts for 3 consecutive days but not every year so check their website. Apart from the concerts and dances there are workshops and slide shows presenting various aspects of Celtic life. We only went to one evening concert as it was 60 km away from where we were staying but enjoyed it enormously. It was mainly traditional Irish music and dance but the day before you could also hear Scottish pipers. Wish we had gone to see it the day before as well!
BTW, there is a campsite nearby where you can put up your tent as many people come for the 3 days.

UPDATE: I have just learnt from the Tourist Information Centre in Suwalki that, to everybody's regret, this festival is no longer organized nowadays. I have decided not to delete my tip though in case it returns to us some time soon.

Dress Code: Casual, Celtic elements are welcome. Wear comfortable shoes - it's very hard to stay still listening to this kind of music so soon everybody was dancing or swinging to the rhythm.

Address: Dowspuda

Directions: In the ruins and park of the palace of Count Ludwik Michal Pac, confiscated for his participation in the national uprising of 1830.

Theme: Live Music

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
