The Gathering

Festivals and Celebrations

23 Jun 2019

The Gathering brings the wider community together in celebration of Celtic music, culture and performance.

In the spirit of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, against the historic backdrop of Ipswich, visitors will witness the colour and spectacle of the Queensland Pipe Band Championships, featuring 250 of Australia’s pipe band competitors.

A Highland dancing competition, Celtic music, lost arts and a medieval re-enactment will also feature at this annual Highland gathering of Scottish, Irish, Welsh, French, Spanish, Cornish Celtic cultures.

Visitors can also sample Haggis, learn how to play the bagpipes and even participate in the strong man style Highland games, featuring the caber toss, kilted dash and tug-of-war.

Bring the whole clan along and discover Celtic heritage and historic Ipswich at The Gathering at Ipswich Turf Club.

The Gathering is sponsored by our foundation partners the Ipswich City Council and the City of Ipswich Pipe Band, along with their media partners River 949 and Bishopp, and other supporting partners.
