CCE Ncorth American Convention
The Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann North American Convention is held yearly in
April/May and is the largest gatherings of traditional
Irish musicians and dancers in North America.
Typically it starts on Thursday evening with a welcoming Ceili. Various business
meetings are held on Friday with another dance in the evening. Saturday is
a day of music, dance and cultural workshops with a dinner dance and Ceili in
the evening. More dance workshops follow on Sunday with a farewell Ceili in the
Throughout the entire event sessions break out everywhere. Some extremely large
and others more intimate. Many of the world's finest musicians and bands
perform at the event.
Like all conventions it is held in a hotel so there is no travel from your
accommodation to the events. Nor is there any need for designated drivers.
It is a great way to meet others who enjoy Irish music and dance and many will
attest to the lasting friendships renewed each year at the Comhaltas convention.
If you have never attended it it worth trying. You won't be sorry !
