The 62nd Festival of the Tartans & Highland Games

Wednesday, July 17th - Sunday, July 21st, 2019

Pictou County, Nova Scotia, Canada

Come and celebrate with us!

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, Pipe Band demonstrations and other outdoor entertainment. Also plan to attend the Tartan Tea at the Opening, the antique car show in downtown New Glasgow and the popular fiddle Concert on Friday 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.
