Are dogs allowed at the event?


Dogs are allowed at the festival, but must be on a leash. Be prepared to clean up after your dog . We look forward to seeing you and your furry friend at the festival! 


Is the venue wheelchair accessible?


While there are ramps to allow for wheelchairs, the main part of the festival is on a grassy field. Additionally, the main road and parking lot is gravel and may cause some difficulty. The Friday night concert, held inside the arena, has space available for wheelchairs at the top of the seating. The Saturday and Sunday entertainment stage, under the pavilion, is on a concrete floor.  


Should I bring my own chairs?


Some areas of the event have seating, such as inside the arena. This is where the Friday night Tattoo is held and where the Dance Competition is held on Saturday. However, most areas of the festival do not have seating, so you may want to bring seating of some kind, like camp chairs, so you have a place to sit. 


Should I bring my own food?


You are able to bring you own food and non-alcoholic drinks into the event if you would like. However, there will be vendors there selling a variety of food and drinks! You can see what vendors will be there on our VENDOR page. 


What is the Tattoo on Friday night?


We have a Tattoo and a Ceilidh on Friday night to kick off our festival. This includes bagpipes, music, dancing, and fun! 


Are only the Scots invited?


The Moab Celtic Festival is a celebration of all Celts. This is not limited to Scots, but also extends to Irish, Welsh and other Celtic nations. Additionally, we invite all, whether Celtic or not, to come to our event. As part of our event, we want to spread our Celtic roots, but also share and educate others of our heritage. People from all backgrounds are welcome and encouraged to attend.
