Held annually since 1958
The Festival of the Tartans is celebrated every year with a five day program that is sure to bring out the Scot in everyone, even those without Scottish roots! The Festival of the Tartans celebrates traditional Scottish culture brought to this area by Scottish immigrants more than 2 centuries ago. There are events for all ages including a Kilted Golf Tournament, Massed Pipe Bands, Piping & Drumming Competition, Highland Dancing Competitions, Scottish Heavy Weight Events, Clan Tents & Genealogy, Pipe Band performances and other outdoor entertainment. Also plan to attend the Tartan Tea at the Opening, a Gaelic Language talk/workshop, and the popular "Kitchen Party" Variety Concert. Tap your toes and clap your hands to the live Celtic music and experience the historic Kirkin’ o’ the Tartan Ceremony at the closing.
