Over the years many of our volunteers have talked in passing about creating a tartan design for the festival. The festival’s founding family, The Banks’, decided it would be a wonderful achievement to help us celebrate our 15th Anniversary. They spent time working with experts on the project as a gift to commemorate the Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival. Our design was submitted and approved by The Scottish Register of Tartans on September 3, 2015, making our ownership official and adding it to the world’s only tartan database. We believe it’s a great achievement for our festival – something we can all share and even brag about because we all own this design!
Blue represents the festival being held along the shore of Great Lake Ontario, and all the colors represent the Celtic Nations celebrated at the festival, based on the modern flags of each country.
The Niagara Celtic Festival Tartan has no use restrictions. This means the design can be used by festival participants and guests, helping everyone to feel like part of the Niagara Celtic family.
Our tartan can be used for fabric/ clothing items: kilts, skirts, dresses, ties, blankets, hats, shirts and more. At the current moment our tartan can be woven by any company.
