At the 26th annual Scottish Festival & Highland Games, four large entertainment tents hold professional bagpipers, folk musicians, and dancers in Maverick Stadium. Competition grows fierce in contests for Scotch ale brewing, shortbread baking, and possession of the “bonniest knees.” Friday hosts a ceilidh, a traditional gathering for music and merrymaking, while Sunday hosts kirking services, traditional worship and church services.

Texas Scottish Festival & Highland Games

More than 65 vivid clan tents cover the grounds at each year’s Texas Scottish festival, where Scots strut proudly around, wearing kilts and displaying their clan tartans. The notes of bagpipes float through the air, blasted from the lungs of talented soloists or from the year’s featured pipe-and-drum band. Market stalls show off Scottish and Celtic wares, from kilts and tartans to artisan Celtic jewelry and art. Competition flourishes amid Scot-descended attendees and curious festgoers at professional or amateur athletics as well as in an all-Scottish-breed dog show. While multitudes of Scottish beers wet whistles and fortify bagpiping or kilt-twirling courage, food vendors sell American fair food alongside traditional Scottish sundries that include meat pies, Scotch eggs, and haggis—chopped meat cured in a sheep’s stomach to the sound of Highland lullabies.
