Scottish Festival and Highland Games
June 16, 1:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree – $45
Put a smile on your face, warmth in your heart and a spring in your step at the 37th annual Scottish Festival & Highland Games. This 2-day, outdoor family-friendly event is a chance to explore Scottish culture without buying a plane ticket. The Scottish Festival features an extravaganza of activities and attractions – the largest bagpiping championship in North America, the iconic caber toss, highland dancing, kids activities (including a Scottish petting zoo), Scottish genealogy and history, classic British car show, dogs of Scotland and a marketplace where you can buy (very nearly) anything Scottish…..kilts, candy, cuddly toys, jewelry, soccer jerseys, beer, music, almost anything tartan and, of course, haggis! Plus, all proceeds benefit Caledonia Senior Living & Memory Care, the principal charity of Chicago Scots, the oldest not-for-profit in Illinois.
