No, the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games maintains a policy that does not permit any pets on the Festival grounds or concessions area, excluding registered service dogs. This policy is enforced out of respect and safety for the animals. They must be confined to a designated campsite. For more information, please see the Festival’s Pets Policy.
Fully serviced campsites on the Festival grounds are available for the weekend, at a cost. The Festival also has a limited amount of fully-serviced campsites available, located immediately behind the Concession lots for the weekend.
Water is available, where applicable, at costs indicated on the Vendor application form.
Hydro is available at 115v /60hz. @ 15amps or 230v /60hz. @ 30amps. Any special hook-up will be at your own expense and must be arranged with our on-site Hydro Technicians.
All electrical equipment to be connected must have the Electrical Safety Sticker. If the sticker is not visible, the equipment WILL NOT be hooked up.
Garbage disposal and garbage receptacles will be available. The garbage drums located on the Concessions roadway are NOT for your use. Please break down all boxes for recycling.
*If you leave any garbage on your site or in the public drums, you will be fined $500.
No power generators of any kind will be permitted due to noise. This affects the competition judges’ ability to hear events.
No loudspeakers or objectionable noise will be tolerated in the Concessions area.
No refunds will be granted. While we understand special circumstances do arise, please contact us with any of your concerns. We will do our best to accommodate and help navigate a solution that will work best for you and the Festival.
While the Festival has no set hours required for Vendors to operate, we do strongly encourage you operating your Concession for the majority of the Festival, including Saturday evening.
Please note: it is expected that you will remain until the Festival ends on Sunday afternoon.
