Back for its 6th year, the Colorado Tartan Day Festival celebrates all things Scottish. A family-friendly affair, guests are encouraged to wear kilts and other traditional clothing, however, it’s not required. On-site, attendees can purchase custom clothing and jewelry, discover if they have Scottish ancestry at one of the twenty clan tents, or stop by a food truck before heading to the pub for a beer.
Held at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont, the Colorado Tartan Day Festival is free to attend. Taking place on Saturday and Sunday, April 8th – 9th, 2023, there will be live musical performances, a parade, forums, face-painting, children’s activities, and an opportunity to win two custom-made Celtic quilts during the weekend.
Additionally, the Renaissance Scots Living History Association hosts a village where you can watch live demonstrations of heritage crafts such as blacksmithing and leatherwork or taste traditional dishes before watching the Wolves of Dunvegan practice combat skills. A great event for everyone, the Colorado Tartan Day Festival should not be missed!
