Pipefest Barbados

Pipe bands and individual players are invited to join the carnival atmosphere at the 2017 Barbados Celtic Festival 26-29th May. This a great opportunity to bring your pipes or drums and enjoy a pipe band holiday with a week in Barbados next May!

The Barbados Celtic Festival celebrates the links between Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Nova Scotia, the Gallic regions in Europe and the sunny Caribbean island of Barbados. What better way to celebrate than with 100 pipers!


Pipefest Barbados will take place over 4 days but is best suited to players who want to visit the island for  a week. The event aims to be the biggest pipe band gathering ever to take place in the Caribbean.
