As a growing awareness of Arts and Heritage, this festival is anything but ‘boring’, and is borne from the success of the "Spellman's Boreen Festival of 2009". Brought to you by Connect Castlegar and The Arts Council

The Official Time-table of events went much as it was planned and the weather was complicit in its success.


  • Giants descended with legs that are long -still dwarfed by the Castle, hovering-on.
  • Music permeates - singing of times, still not gone.
  • Dancing on feet - that soon will be strong - while others may dither, and still not be wrong.
