The Spanish Peaks Internation Celtic Music Festival, now 17 years old, is known primarily as a four-day festival of Celtic music and workshops. However, each year, prior to the actual four-day festival, we offer, cost-free, some of our musicians and presenters to Huerfano County Schools. These events have ranged from a half day to a full day of activities for students. We would not be able to pay for this were it not for the many donations that we receive. We estimate the annual cost of doing this to range between $2000 - $3000. We would be grateful for any of your contributions to this special part of our annual event.

Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival

  • Our Vision Statement reads, “The premier international Celtic Music Festival Destination, located at the foot of the Spanish Peaks.” The Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival (SPICMF) is that, a Celtic music festival, but really so much more.  We are more accurately a four day ‘destination-retreat’ where internationally respected artists and scholars not only perform in concert, but share
    their musical talent and knowledge in a full range of upwards of fifty plus workshops, demonstration talks, and open (free) singing, dancing and playing sessions for all.  Perhaps most importantly, we provide musical and cultural education at no charge to the schools in our county.
    We express this in our Mission Statement: “The SPICMF celebrates the living legacy of the worldwide Celtic cultures and traditions with opportunities to experience the diversity of Celtic spirit through creative interaction, education and performances.”
