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 two centuries ago. There are events for all ages including a Kilted Golf Tournament, massed pipe bands, Highland Dancing competitions, Scottish Heavy Weight Events, Clan Tents & Genealogy, a bagpipe quartet competition, and other outdoor entertainment. Also plan to attend our Official Launch on the riverfront, the antique car show in downtown New Glasgow and the popular fiddle Concert on Thursday evening. Tap your toes and clap your hands to the live Celtic music, and experience the historic Kirkin’ o’ the Tartan Ceremony at the closing

July 17th – July 21st.
