CENTRE WELLINGTON, ON March 4, 2022 – 

 

Tilt your kilt and book your tickets for the 2022 Fergus Scottish Festival!

Here is the news that you have all been waiting for! The Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games has announced that tickets will go on sale at 10 am on Tartan Day: Wednesday, April 6, 2022.  

In January, the Festival announced that it was optimistically planning towards presenting a live event as it continues to monitor the pandemic. The Festival organizers are now thrilled to be in a position to begin ticket sales, including day and weekend admission and campsite sales.  

The 2022 Fergus Scottish Festival takes place August 12 – 14th with plans to bring guests the best the Festival has to offer and will feature the four pillars: Heavy Events, Highland Dance, Clans & Heritage, and Pipes & Drums. This year, the Festival is excited to welcome back the Red Hot Chili Pipers. They will be performing Friday, August 12, following the traditional Festival Tattoo.

Hosting the first live event since the start of the pandemic, the Festival Board of Directors noted that the priority continues to be the safety of guests, volunteers, competitors, performers, clans, sponsors, and community so that they can enjoy ‘Scotland without the Airfare’ well into the future. Festival President, David Radley stated, “The Festival is working closely with our partners at the Municipality and Public Health to ensure the event surpasses safety expectations and will follow the local public health guidelines in the delivery of our world-class event.”

Ticket sales will be available at www.fergusscottishfestival.com. Sign up for our newsletter and stay tuned to our social media channels for announcements and updates. The Festival is grateful for the steadfast support received throughout the past two years and as we return to the traditional live event in August.
