The annual Colorado Scottish Festival, presented by the St. Andrew Society of Colorado, is a family-friendly event that showcases Scottish traditions, culture, and history. With something for all ages, there will be athletic competitions, re-enactments, weaving, leather working, blacksmithing, traditional Celtic folk music, piping, and drumming.
Providing visitors with a chance to learn about their family trees at the Clan Tents, this year’s 59th event takes place from Saturday to Sunday, August 5th – 6th, 2023 at the Denver Polo Club in Sedalia. Also featuring Irish step dancing, lectures, and a performance by the World Junior Highland Dance Champion, there will be plenty of vendors with Scottish and Celtic items for sale.
With food vendors, traditional culinary dishes, a beer tent, whiskey tastings, and John Shields’ famous haggis, you’re sure to have a full belly and a good time.
For those looking to see some action, there will be combat and swordsmanship elements to the festival in addition to weaponry with a range of swords. And for anyone looking to bust a move, there will be a concert at the end of the first day while those bringing kids will be happy to know there are activities meant especially for them.
A great event to experience and learn more about Scottish culture, The Colorado Scottish Festival is a great way to spend a weekend.
