The Celtic Dog Parade happens once each day at 3pm and is led by a member of the Silver Thistle Pipes and Drums. It’s one of our much anticipated family friendly traditions at ACF. Pets are not allowed in the Festival grounds, but you can register your Celtic dog breed as a performer if you believe he has the right temperament and you agree to participate in the Celtic Dog Parade. If you would like your Celtic dog breed to be in the Celtic Dog Parade, please contact our Celtic Animal Coordinator via email at

Celtic dog breeds include: Irish Setters, Welsh Corgis, West Highland Terriers, Skye Terriers, Cairn Terriers, Scottish Deerhounds, Irish Wolfhounds, Border Collies, Collies, Scotties, Gordon Setters, Kerry Beagle, Irish Water Spaniel Golden Retriever, Bearded Collie, Shetland Sheepdog and more.
