Bring the family and have a great time!





2013 T-shirt SOLD OUT!


We try to find something interesting for "Scotty" to do every year for the Festival T-shirt art - like last year, when he rode a Highland Coo. If you've been to our Festival before, you know that sliding down the dike on a piece of cardboard has become a tradition with the kids (and some daring adults!). This year, even "Scotty" got in on the action for a wee bit o' fun!

Terrific Entertainers, Bands, Pipes & Drums, Scottish & Irish merchandise vendors, Food Vendors, Kid's playground area, Bagpipe Competition, Drum Competition, Irish Step Dance and Highland Dance Demonstrations, and Lots More Fun.
