25th Annual Féis an Eilein August 18 th -22 nd 2015 A Feis is a community-based festival designed to promote the Gaelic language and culture of an area in part through the provision of educational and social activities for people of all ages. The first Féis was held on the Isle of Barra in 1981. The community of Christmas Island, located on Cape Breton, is home to the first Féis to be held outside of Scotland. We are proud to be celebrating our 25th year as a festival dedicated to preserving and promoting Gaelic culture. Please join us for concerts, ceilidhs, Gaelic story-telling and song circle, a traditional Milling Frolic, and workshops in Gaelic language, song, step and square dance, and fiddle.
