    Aye, can you hear the pipes calling you back?  Haste ye back to the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games!

    They say it’s like visiting Scotland, without the airfare. We think they’re right.  So pack your bags, your kilts and your Scottish pride (hey, you can even borrow it – be a Scots for a day!) and come to one of the best festivals in the province.

    The Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games is a true celebration of Scottish culture, in the spirit of promoting and preserving the cultural heritage, from the arts and ancestry to the traditional competitions of sport.  For the town of Fergus, rooted in Scottish history, this event is a source of great pride for the community, volunteers and organizers.

    And it’s party to be had!  With a full line-up of music performances, dance and pipe band competitions, the traditional Tattoo and even some celebrity guests, we like to think of it as “Scotland without the jet lag.”

    So get your tartan on and meet us there!
