The Highland Athletics will feature Taber Tossing, Sheaf Tossing, and the Heavy Hammer throw, among other events. Come and see these athletes up close and personal.

Numerous Scottish Clans will be on hand so you can learn about Celtic heritage and find out if you have any Scottish blood running through your veins. See Celtic dancers perform typical dances from Scotland, Ireland, and other regions in the British Isles. The British Car Club will feature beautiful vehicles from Great Britain.

After walking and enjoying the event, you can relax in the Scottish Tea Room and enjoy a warm cup of tea and a scone while listening to traditional Scottish music. Of course, no festival is complete without refreshments: a pub and dining tent, whisky tastings, and authentic Scottish food and merchandise vendors.

Get your tickets early and come and enjoy a day of fun! There will be a Celtic Kids Camp where the little ones can play and enjoy the event also. Buy your tickets online at pcbscottishfestival.com. Looking forward to seeing you there!
