So what makes the Fergus Scottish Festival so special? Well, we are one of an elite group of festivals that hosts competitions and gatherings around the four major tenets of highland games: CLANS, HEAVIES, PIPES AND DRUMS, and DANCE It really is a bit of Scotland… without the airfare!



We are thrilled to include our local businesses and community in this year’s festival! They have really rallied around us for the past 72 years, and we couldn’t be happier to have them be included as integral part of the weekend! Check out what’s going on in our beautiful town.



McKiddies family fun, the Tea Tent, the Tug-of-War, the Vendors, the Highland Pub, the Sunday Race

It really is the best of Scotland… without the airfare!

    Your website doesn’t advise what activities are happening on each day throughout the weekend. As a visitor I have no clue what’s on when. Can you let me know.
