Rough camping will be available this year at Celtfest!


There is an open grassy area (road on perimeter only) in the upper portion of Gemmill Park, behind the ball diamond, that will be open for tents and some trailers.  We will charge $10 per person, per night, and registration is required.  Campers can come in starting at 2:00 on Friday, July 8 and must vacate the park following the festival on Sunday, July 10.  This will be more like group camping than individual sites, so be prepared to like your neighbours!


Heavy vehicles (RV’s and large trucks) will not be allowed to park on the grass, so camping is limited for this type of vehicle – a few spots on perimeter will be available.  Generator use will be limited to short (not continuous) use in daylight hours if necessary.

There is a basic flush toilet on site, and showers will be available in the arena Saturday and Sunday morning.  There is no electricity available and no hook-ups of any sort.  Restaurants,  a corner store and shopping are a short walk away.  This will be a family setting, and no late night parties will be tolerated.

Arrival:  There will be signage when you arrive, and entrance (182 Bridge Street) is into the arena parking lot and immediately keep left  (on dirt road) into the upper park beyond the soccer pitch and the ball diamond.  A volunteer will be on site to greet you and collect your fees (cash only) Ideally, campers will arrive between 2 and 8 on Friday, and between 8 and noon on Saturday.  Please let us know if you need alternate arrangements.
