Spanish Peaks Piping Retreat 2022

From Thursday, Sept. 22, to Sunday, Sept. 25, come join a welcoming gathering of people who play “alternative bagpipes” — principally Scottish smallpipes and uilleann pipes — in the beautiful Spanish Peaks region of SE Colorado. Lessons, ceilidhs, concerts, fellowship, fresh air, and more!

As an added enticement, the 2022 Spanish Peaks Piping Retreat coincides with the much-loved Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival. The stars are truly aligned this year!

Evening concert tickets

Thanks to the generosity of the Spanish Peaks International Celtic Music Festival, everyone who registers for the piping retreat will receive a complimentary ticket for an evening concert during the festival! (The only tough part will be deciding which amazing show to enjoy.)


The 2022 piping retreat will take place at the old La Veta High School, which is on the southeast corner of the intersection of E. Garland St. and S. Main St. in the heart of La Veta (look for a flag on the handrail at the entrance by the old gym). 

La Veta sits way up high in the fresh Colorado air at an elevation of 7,000 ft. Be sure to bring a water bottle so you can stay hydrated!
