After 18 years the Almonte Celtfest may not take place this summer because of what organizers are calling a “lack of leadership.”

According to a post on the festival’s Facebook page, the group has no Festival Chair or Artistic Committee Chair for this year’s event. There is a still a very large core group of volunteers on the organizing committee, but if no one steps up to take on the challenge of leadership roles, there will be no Celftest in 2015.

They’re also looking for a webmaster able to manage their WordPress-based website.

The group says that, “With no person at the head to lead our Festival … and no one prepared to choose and contract the acts … we cannot continue.”

A meeting will be held on Monday at the Almonte Old Town Hall, and if no one steps up to fill the key roles, the plug will be pulled for this year.
