Ranked #7 of “the top 100 things to do in arkansas” by AY magazine, The arkansas Scottish festival will take place April 2-5, 2020.
Every April, Lyon College holds the Arkansas Scottish Festival, one of the premier Scottish festivals in the United States. Established in 1979 as the Highland Games, the festival is emblematic of the College, its Scottish heritage, and its Presbyterian connection. Over the years, the festival has grown from a small Scottish fair to one of the top venues in the South Central United States for pipers, bands, dancers, and athletes.
Join us for a weekend full of piping competitions, delicious food, and unique handmade crafts. Gates open early Saturday morning, April 4, and opening ceremonies will begin at 1 p.m. with a parade of massed bands and clans.
