The festival itself was a little smaller than I expected but I have to say this was one of the most disorganized events I have been to. Parking was full so we had to park at the Pike, waited for a bus for about an hour or 2, the bus driver was a jerk and stopped after the busstop so those of us that had been waitin had to wait for the next bus cause other people jumped the line. The ticket line person kept telling us 2 different things, 4 different times. She clearly was not prepared. But the Highland games were fun to watch and so were the pipes and drums.
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!
