the Festival is great to learn about the various clans, clothing, historic behavior and food of Scotland. The Friday, Saturday and early Sunday hours also have activities for children and there are performance tents setup at 3 corners of the UTA fields for music, story-telling, etc. There are of course the Scottish sporting activities of 'caber' toss, etc. Really just enjoy walking around, watching the activities, perusing the shops and eating (if adventurous) the Bangers and Mash :)

The meat pies are delicious, the music is amazing, the games are a spectacle! You learn so much and people are helpful and friendly. My boyfriend and I learned about this festival last yr and look forward to continue to going from now on.

From Our Editors

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 fest-goers 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. These include meat pies, Scotch eggs, and haggis—chopped meat cured in a sheep’s stomach to the sound of Highland lullabies.
