Bing Stone Gap Celtic Festival

Big Stone Celtic is modeled on small town festivals that take place throughout the European Celtic nations and takes place in a variety of venues clustered around the downtown.

Focusing on the games, foods, dances, music and songs of the seven nations, the festival is unusual for this approach in the United States. We have also begun to promote the strong connection between Celtic and Appalachian culture.

European festivals often include races of various kinds (horse races in the old days) and Big Stone Celtic is no exception, with the first Saturday event being a 26 mile bike race - the 'Tour De Cracker's Neck'.

Big Stone Gap lies on HWY 23, just 45 minutes North of Kingsport, Tennessee and 1 hour West of Abingdon, Virginia, between the Blue Ridge and Cumberland mountains.
