All the best to you. Stay safe and well in these unusual times.
Hosting a world class Scottish Festival is what we do best. However we felt it was important to be realistic and proactive with our planning this year. 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. Should restrictions allow, we hope to add modified live components to our presentation this year as well.
The Fergus Scottish Festival is a 3 day Festival and Highland Games. A great deal of planning, time, energy, and resources go into its production. We are all disappointed that the live Festival is not a reality again in 2021 but we acknowledge that it would be irresponsible for us to move forward in these difficult COVID-19 times. We can’t say it enough, the health and safety of everyone associated with the Festival is our number one priority. We look forward to coming together again in 2022 and encourage you to join us for the virtual event and other offerings that we have in store as restrictions allow.
Great question! It was actually the 75th Anniversary of the Fergus Scottish Festival in 2020 but due to COVID, we were virtual. Confident we would be able to gather in person, we decided to postpone this great milestone to this year. Well COVID got the best of us again. We are a hearty bunch however and whether live or virtual, the 75th is worth celebrating…..hence 75th Anniversary 2.021! In 2022, we will be back on track and will celebrate our 77th year (sorry 76).
The Board has had to make a very tough decision regarding the 2021 Festival 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 produce our fully attended live event on short notice.
