Welcome to the Texas Scottish Festival & Highland Games.

The skirl of the Pipes, the cheers of encouragement for the Athletic events, and the swirling of the Highland Dancers reminds all Scots of our rich and glorious heritage.

Due to the extreme weather in 2015, the officials at the University of Texas Arlington decide to close the stadium on Sunday, thereby ending the Festival for the year. We are very sorry for this inconvenience, but are thankful that UTA was concerned for the safety of our guests and Patrons.
For those who purchased advance tickets for Sunday (2015), please read our official refund policy. Your Sunday tickets will be honored next year.
The Festival will return May 13-15, 2016, our 30th year!

I hope that you will join us again in 2016, and as always, I bid you all CEUD MILE FAILTE, a 100,000 welcomes.

Ray McDonald, Executive Director
