Rumors of ghosts on the Queen Mary abound -- in fact, Time magazine voted it one of the "Top 10 Haunted Places." The retired ocean liner now invites you to embark on a two-hour adventure taking you deep into this world-famous ship. You'll be led through the vessel's passageways as you learn about the tools of the paranormal trade. Try your own hand at communicating with the spirits or simply wait to see what goes bump in the night! Expect the unexpected on the ship once known as the Grey Ghost. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
- Athletics: For centuries, Scots have been competing in tests of physical strength, skill and technique, and ScotsFest gives visitors a chance to see (or compete) these exciting events firsthand.
Grand Parade: A crowd pleaser each year, the Grand Parade showcases all the Scottish clans and bands participating at ScotsFest.
Whisky and Beer Tasting Explore the complex taste of traditional Scottish whisky and learn why sometimes it’s spelled with an “e.”
Music and Dancing: Traditional Highland dancing was once considered an athletic event due to the stamina and physical strength required to perform a variety of traditional Scottish dances, including the Highland Fling, the Sword Dance and the Scottish Lilt.
Sheepherding: * One of the most unique and unpredictable events at ScotsFest is sheepherding. Owners, their dogs and of course, the sheep, will compete through an obstacle course where they will earn points for speed and accuracy.
Sligo Rags: Dubbed a One-Band Music Festival, Sligo Rags returns to Queen Mary’s Scotsfestival with their infectious energy, eclectic musical influences and captivating sound. Among the top acoustic bands in LA (by Folkworks Magazine) and two-time winners of the Orange County Music Award for Best Folk Band, this dynamic ensemble presents Celtic Folk with a decidedly bluegrass attitude. Sligo Rags will put a smile on your face, a laugh in your belly and a shake in your tail feather!
