If music, dancing, kilts, and competitive sports sound like a winning combination to you, then this fall you’ll want to head to Tulsa for the Scottish Highland Games and Celtic music festival. During the weekend of Sept. 13-15, the Clans will return to Tulsa to celebrate Celtic history, heritage and music at SCOTFEST 2013.
The Highland Games are one of many annual events at River Parks, and just a short trip from Cedar Grove. Over 20,000 attendees are expected at this year’s games. If you want to compete make sure to register soon, spots are filling up quickly.
If you’ve been lifting the free weights in our onsite fitness center, you’re probably ready to take on the caber toss, hammer throw, the sheaf toss, or the one-handed Weight for Height challenge. To guarantee your competitor’s t-shirt, register online by Aug. 30.
Those on the sidelines will also get to see local champ Dean Ross show his warrior skills on the field. If you just want to come down to observe all the cultural events at River Parks fest during SCOTFEST, all you need is a healthy appetite and a lot of energy.
Opening night events run from 5 until 11 p.m.. On Saturday, the gates are open from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m and on Sunday from 9 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. Admission is only $6 and children 12 and under get in free. No food or drink may be brought in, but many vendors will be on the premises serving great Scottish meals and spirits.
