The festival opened at 16:30 on Friday with a lecture titled "Bees and Celts" on the topic of beekeeping and mead production in Celtic times. It was followed by PhDr. Jana Čižmářová´s lecture about a unique discovery – a kettle from Brno-Maloměřice. A replica of the kettle was displayed during the whole festival. The lectures were followed by evening concerts of the bands Irish Dew, Asonance and Jull Dajen.

Saturday was full of attractions. Ancient nations settled in the castle gardens and their members were introducing the visitors to the lifestyle and crafts of the late Iron Age. On display was the work of blacksmiths, glassmakers, leather makers, bronze casters and others. Equites Gabreta lifted the veil on the art of battle horse training, and for the first time birds of prey circled around the area during a falconry presentation by Jaroslav Pelíšek. The historical activities in the garden were enriched by two Celtic tribes – Viviskes (Switzerland) and Boier in Bayern (Germany).

In addition to the lectures, the learning about Celtic times was facilitated by a guided tour with an archeologist to a nearby oppidum in České Lhotice. Spiritual enrichment was brought by morning exercise Wyda and the men´s or women´s circle. Lively atmosphere was also in Kaštanka where games and competitions for children took place. In the course of the day the dance group Quadrilla was introduced on stage for the first time with their Irish dance performance. After the three-day programs in 2014 and 2015, the festival returned to its two-day variant and ended at a high point – with an evening concert of the bands Jauvajs, Dick O´Brass, Bran, Beerberries.
