Come to Know the Majesty That is the Scottish Highlands
For over 75 years, Scotland again comes to the Pacific Northwest the weekend of July 21, 22 and 23, 2023! The 6th oldest Scottish festival in the US featuring the North American Scottish Athletics Championship, US West Coast Drum Corps Championship, individual Piping and Drumming, and Pipe Bands – you will see and experience it all, plus much, much more at the Enumclaw Expo Center. Will you join us for a few hours or the entire weekend? Are you a veteran or a novice? No matter, you will find yourself experiencing a wee bit of Scotland right here in the Pacific Northwest!
Be amazed by the titans who deftly toss the caber and put the stone, matching skill and strength against the odds on the athletic field of battle. Thrill to the bourdon of the bagpipes and the cadence of the drums as you witness, first hand, the fine array of talented pipers and drummers competing before judges of worldwide renown.
During your visit, you’ll be able to sample a wide variety of delicious and traditional Scottish foods. Don’t miss the chance to take a break and head over to the Rampant Lion Pub, the Tilted Kilt Pub or the Heavy Lifting Pub to raise a glass of fine Scottish style ales and quench your thirst. Sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Celtic Arts Showcases as various local Irish and Scottish musicians, and singers perform. Our 2023 Featured Performers will be Elias Alexander Trad Band, Golden Bough, Tempest, Brother, Colin Grant-Adams, and Men of Worth. We invite you to visit the encampment of the Northwest’s premier combat troupe, the Seattle Knights. Their performances include high-energy acting and choreographed stage combat using real steel weapons including broadswords, axes, and staves.
Take a stroll through the Avenue of the Clans, the Glen of the Clans, and our Walk Through Time and delve into your Scottish ancestry and heritage. Observe the fine workmanship of Scottish artisans and spend your hard-earned tuppence on lovely imported goods from the British Isles as you wend your way through the Hall of the Vendors.
Plan to attend the Ceilidh (Kay-lee) Saturday evening — a traditional Scottish party with music, sing-along, and Scottish country dancing.
It is a weekend not to be missed — full of fun, education, and traditional Scottish activities, so please join us and enjoy a wee bit of Scotland right here in the Pacific Northwest!

As a self-supporting, non-profit, all-volunteer organization funding our programs can be difficult. With no corporate backing behind us, and the escalation of expenses over the last few years, our efforts to meet our budget requirements and explore additions to our lineup, has been stymied.
Our journey has been a struggle but with your donation we can navigate and survive these unprecedented times and go into the future solvent and whole! YOU are appreciated.
Thank you for donating to help us continue bringing Scotland to the Pacific Northwest!
