Tickets are now available for the much-anticipated return of the Penticton Scottish Festival taking place in King’s Park on July 2.
The Penticton Scottish Festival is a unique one-day event that combines traditional Scottish Highland Games of musical and athletic competition with Celtic cultural expos of entertainment and family fun.
See many amazing events throughout the day, such as Highland dancing, bagpiping, drumming, and caber toss, to name a few. Enjoy pipe band competitions, an entertainment stage, and a Ceilidh to round out the festivities.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the entertainment line-up: the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band (Grade 1), Vale United Pipe Band, Society for Creative Anachronism and Shot of Scotch.
“We are thrilled to bring a taste of the highlands back to Penticton this summer,” says Elizabeth Smith, president of the Penticton Scottish Festival Society, when the society announced it would be making a post-pandemic return.
“The whiskey tasting workshop is back, and speaking of scotch, shot of scotch, a professional highland dance troupe will captivate visitors and locals alike.”
