ScotsFestival & International Highland Games XXVI
February 16th & 17th, 2019

Eighty-eight years ago, in the quaint seaside town of Clydebank, Scotland, construction began on the Queen Mary. Exemplifying the finest craftsmanship of the country, the Queen Marys heritage is celebrated throughout the two-day ScotsFestival honoring Scottish culture.

The Queen Mary is pleased to welcome back the annual ScotsFestival & International Highland Games XXVI February 16 & 17 (9AM - 6PM). Experience the rich culture and history of Scotland first hand through an array of authentic activities, athletics, dancing, entertainment and cuisine, paying homage to the Queen Marys Scottish legacy.

ScotsFestival honors nearly fifty Scottish clans & vendors throughout the weekend with professional and amateur competitions in piping, drumming, massed bands, darts, Highland dancing, and the brand new North American Professional Highland athletics. The Scottish Highland Games, a precursor to today's Olympic Games, were designed to test the strength, skill, and technique of ancient warriors through face-offs. With falconry, sheep herding and a large array of other activities, guests will have culture at every turn!

Whisky tasting sessions with aged malt experts are available for adult festivalgoers while the wee laddies & lassies can bear witness to Queen Mary's coronation, knighting ceremonies, and even take part in the Wee Highland games.

This February, join us for our 26th annual ScotsFestival celebration. Stay tuned for more information, Highland Games and activities registration, entertainment, and all the amazing offerings coming this year!
