It is with heavy hearts that the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games announce the cancellation of the 2020 Festival and the postponement of our 75thAnnivesary. 

The Board of Directors has been monitoring the COVID-19 developments over the past couple of months.  We maintained spirited yet cautious optimism that we would be able to once again do what we do best – host a world class Scottish Festival and Highland Games.   Our priority however is to encourage the ongoing recovery efforts due to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and ensure that our guests, volunteers, competitors, performers, clans, sponsors, and community are safe and healthy so they can enjoy ‘Scotland without the Airfare’ for years to come.

The Festival will be issuing refunds for all tickets purchased including day and weekend passes, camping, concession, and clan purchases.

At this time we are pleased to invite you to Tartan up and join us, August 13 – 15th, 2021 for the Fergus Scottish Festival & Highland Games 75th Anniversary.  Stay tuned to our website for details regarding ticket  sales, camping sales, and special announcements. Be safe, be kind, and take care of you and yours.

Frequently Asked Questions

Hosting a world class Scottish Festival is what we do best.  However we had to make the very tough, heart breaking decision to cancel this year’s festival  For us this is the right decision because as much as we love the Festival, we value you – our guests, volunteers, competitors, performers, clans, sponsors, and community – more.  You are our priority and we want to keep you safe and healthy so you can enjoy ‘Scotland without the Airfare’ for years to come.

The Fergus Scottish Festival is a 3 day Festival and Highland Games.  It is not easy to postpone an event of such proportions in a way that is fair to all of our competitors, clans, concessionaires, volunteers, guests, suppliers, performers, and the community as a whole.  Also given the uncertainty around COVID-19 it is very difficult to pick a future date.

The good news is we have postponed our 75th Anniversary and invite you to join us August 13 – 15, 2021 to help us celebrate 75 years.

The Board has had to make a very tough decision regarding the Festival this year but we believe it is the right decision.  There is a great deal of uncertainty around COVID-19.  Additionally, a great deal of time, energy, and resources go into executing a world class 3 day event.  As much as we would love to, we would not be able to put the Festival back on.
