Texas Scottish Fest and Highland Games Dances into Decatur May 11th

Music, Scottish heavy athletics, highland dancing, food, clan tents, children’s area, opening ceremony visit from Scottish Government Delegate, Ms. Joni Smith and more will highlight this year’s festival.

A spectator favorite, Pro-Scottish athletics that include the Caber Toss, Hammer Throw, Weight Throw, Weight Toss, Sheaf Toss and Putting the Stone, will be featured throughout the weekend. Scottish elicacies such as meat pies, haggis and sausage rolls, as well as fish and chips will be just a part of the culinary delights featured in the food court. Vendors offering a myriad of Scots and Celtic wares will also be available.

Long-time favorites on the Celtic rock scene are in the lineup this year including, Seven Nations, Brother Angus, Scotland Rising, The Selkie Girls, Cleghorn, Tullamore, Jil Chambless and Scooter Muse, Seamus Stout, Beyond the Pale, Reel Treble & More. Traditional pipes and drums will be provided by the Fort Worth Scottish Pipes and Drums and North Texas Caledonian Pipes and Drums.

We find everyone is a wee bit Scottish at the Texas Scottish Festival and it is a festival for ALL ages. Nessie’s Nook Children’s area has live music, children highland games, crafts, face painting, bounce house, tea party, and a treasure hunt. Lots to do for little ones of all ages.
