We are gearing up and excited to announce the return of The Queen Mary's ScotsFestival! The 27th annual ScotsFestival & International Highland Games will return on Saturday, February 15 - Sunday, February 16. Experience the rich culture and history of Scotland first hand through an array of authentic activities, athletics, dancing, entertainment, and cuisine, paying homage to the Queen Mary’s Scottish legacy.

Eighty-nine years ago, in the quaint seaside town of Clydebank, Scotland, construction began on the Queen Mary. Exemplifying the finest craftsmanship of the country, the Queen Mary’s heritage is celebrated throughout the two-day festival honoring Scottish culture and nearly fifty clans and vendors.

Throughout the weekend, guests can witness professional and amateur competitions in piping, drumming, massed bands, darts, Highland dancing, and Highland athletics. This year’s games welcome the highest level of professional Scottish athletes to compete in the all-new North American LightWeight Women’s Championship and returning for the second year, the North American Professional Male Championship. Whisky tasting sessions with aged malt experts are available for adult festivalgoers while the laddies & lassies can bear witness to Queen Mary’s coronation and knighting ceremonies, and even take part in the Wee Highland Games. With falconry, sheep herding, axe-throwing and archery, guests will have culture at every turn!

This February, join us for our 27th annual ScotsFestival celebration.

There will be cannon fire & musket fire at this event, please be aware.
