There are always plenty of reasons to visit Berry, and on Saturday 28th May you can experience the unique atmosphere of the 2022 Berry Celtic Festival. Come and see what medieval life was like in Celtic times. Whether it is the heavily armoured noble knights on horseback or just seeing what village life was like, there is plenty to see. You will hear the thunder of the hooves as horses charge at one another and the jousting knights aim their lances at their opponent. It is full of excitement.
In the background, other knights from the Scottish Soldiers and the Company of the Cross re-live battles in hand-to-hand combat demonstrating their skillful swordplay. Pipe bands performing throughout the day include pipe bands from Illawarra, Canberra, Smithfield, Sydney Thistle, Ingleburn, Goulburn, St. George and Shoalhaven.
The Berry Celtic Festival kicks off at 9.30am with a grand street parade through Berry. The bands will be marching in their distinctive kilts, together with representatives of all of the Clans, medieval knights, and the Scottish Terrier dogs. At the Showground there is the marching of the massed bands, musical items, Celtic fiddlers, Highland dancing, enchanted singing, and of course, the battles of the medieval knights, plus Celtic merchandise stalls to peruse.
Entry is $10 for adults, with children under 15 years free. Saturday 28 May Berry Showground. The Berry Celtic Festival is a fundraising project of the Rotary Club of Berry.
