Celtic Family Jamboree
Sertoma Ranch, Brooksville, Florida
1st full weekend in February
Founded in 2013
Looking to celebrate your Irish roots ... or experience Celtic heritage, culture and music? The Celtic Family Jamboree offers two days of entertainment and comraderie in the woods at Sertoma Ranch near Brooksville.

Regular attendees refer to this festival as "Fam-Jam" because of its family-friendly atmosphere of Celtic music, tradition, and experience. Some of the top names on the Celtic circuit perform on two pavilion stages. There are also a variety of workshops for aspiring and experienced musicians interested in the fiddle, mountain or hammer dulcimer, and other instruments.

A wide variety of Celtic, Irish and other UK based musical talent is on display, including fiddle playing, flute, dulcimer, pipes and drums, and Irish dancing.

Not to be outdone by the musical talent, Irish and Scottish sportsmen are on hand to demonstrate some of the ancient athletic skills practiced for sport in times past ...the stone put, caber toss, hammer throw, and others. At the most recent jamboree, there was also a demonstration of sheep herding with border collies in the large open primitive camping field.

Camping is a favorite of "Fam-Jam" attendees, and the Sertoma Ranch offers both tent and RV campsites. There are a variety of arts and crafts vendors on hand, but be sure to bring your own food and drink. A pot luck dinner is held on Friday evening. Well mannered pets are welcome.
