KitchenFest is back and better than ever!
The island-wide traditional Gaelic music festival returns for year nine.
This year KitchenFest will run from July 1st to 9th.
The annual celebration put on by Colaisde na Gàidhlig (The Gaelic College) gives locals and visitors alike up close and personal insight into this distinct and vibrant living culture, bringing the kitchen-céilidh feel to the forefront.
College President and festival-creator Rodney MacDonald says they are excited to once again collaborate with island partners to showcase and celebrate some of what makes this part of the world so special.
MacDonald says with the province opening back up, we are able to have more live music across the island and some good cheer is just what we need.
Over nine days, in 29 venues, with over 100 events and 150+ performers, the festival showcases music, food, stories, and warm Cape Breton hospitality.
Each of the live performances will feature a Gaelic-speaking host or hostess and happen in all corners of the island.
