The fun won’t stop at 4 p.m. Stick around for the CEILIDH!! (pronounced – Kay-lee) 

4 P.M – 9 P.M. Also at Frank Brown Park. No additional charge. Admission to Ceilidh is included with your festival ticket.

After an exciting day at the Scottish Festival and Highland Games, stay and enjoy a casual evening of music and dance. The musical entertainers will be performing for you and usually end the evening with a Celtic jam session. The evening will be filled with unleashed Celtic humor – jokes, stories, song and perhaps an undisciplined bagpiper or two! Our beer, bar and food vendors will stay open so no need to leave!

While the daytime festival is very much G-Rated, the Ceilidh is for the adults, as some jokes or stories may not be appropriate for the wee ones. Come prepared to laugh, dance, clap your hands and stomp your feet.

Laddies, be sure to wear your kilts – there will be a BONNIEST KNEESCONTEST!
