    Fàilte Air Ais!  |  Welcome Back!

    The Fergus Scottish Festival & Highland Games is an annual three-day event that celebrates local Scottish heritage and features world-renowned talent and entertainment in the beautiful town of Fergus, Ontario. This year’s Festival features Heavy Events Competitions, Pipe Band Competitions, Highland Dancers, over 50 Clans & Heritage Village, Whisky Tasting, McKiddie’s Centre, Celtic musicians and international vendors featuring Scottish wares and fares!

    Organizers call this festival experience “Scotland without the airfare.” Celebrating Scottish heritage, culture and sport, you’ll be immersed in the sights, sounds and flavours of Scotland. From the tradition of the Friday night Festival Tattoo, a moving procession that welcomes the gathering of the Clans, to two full days of events, experiences, and fun for everyone in your clan.

    It doesn’t get any more Scottish outside of Scotland than the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games. And you don’t have to be Scottish to enjoy this celebration of cultural heritage. Three full days of fun and festivities. Come for a day or come for a weekend. Kilts optional.

    We look forward to seeing you August 11 – 13th, 2023!
