The Oklahoma Highland Gathering is a celebration of Scottish culture. Throughout the weekend, attendees can enjoy a taste of Scotland and other Celtic nations through the many activities and entertainers. To kick off the festival, Friday evening will be a Scottish fire festival on the main field at 8:15 p.m. Following the fire festival, a ceilidh (an informal social gathering with folk music, singing, dancing, and storytelling) will take place at 8:45 p.m. in the music tent.
In addition to musical acts, pipe bands and Celtic dancing, there are Highland Game demonstrations.
The kids’ area has crafts, games and two bounce castles. Families can also watch dogs herding sheep and see Highland cattle. Other attractions include Celtic-themed vendors, food trucks with traditional Scottish food, clan tents, genealogy research, crofters’ village and Gaelic lessons & readings.
