Winnipeg Scottish Festival
Canad Inns Polo Park
2015 | TBD
The Forks Historical Site
The Winnipeg Scottish Festival Committee is proud to celebrate our Scottish Heritage in Manitoba for over 20 years.
The festival highlights the best bagpipers and drummers playing musical sets in competition to find a winner at each level of playing. Each year as many as 15 pipe bands play throughout the afternoon. Musicians come from all over the Prairies as well as BC, Ontario, Minnesota and North Dakota. We expect as many as 200 piper and drummers! Here’s a sample of the program.
Be sure to wear your own tartan if you have it, or maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for from one of the vendors.
Come out all day or for just a wee listen, but be sure to check out the Massed Bands playing at 4:30pm. This is a true spectacle!
Please take a moment to visit our vendors and our cultural display. We appreciate the support of many individuals and businesses who have contributed trophies, prizes, silent auction items and advertisements in this program.
It would not be possible to hold a contest of this size without the support of our many volunteers – thank you for twenty-one fabulous Festivals!
