Scottish festival returns to Tulsa with authentic food, music and entertainment
Another year of authentic Scottish food and entertainment began today for residents looking to get a taste of the culture right here in Oklahoma.
Admission to the 33rd Annual Scotfest will begin at 5 pm today at the River West Festival Park. The event, which celebrates Scottish culture, will last through Sunday and is expected to draw more than 15,000 people from Oklahoma and surrounding states.
"Nowhere else in the region can you hear great live Celtic rock bands, excellent pipe bands, Scottish and Irish dance, watch the caber toss and completely immerse yourself in the rich culture of Scotland all in one beautiful location," said Steve Campbell, chairman of the festival.
New to the festival this year are an amateur Strongman Competition, with a Tire Flip and Truck Pull, and wine tastings offered by Tidal School Vineyards.
Other activities at the festival include musical performances from pipe bands, authentic food and athletic challenges. The Scottish Dog Parade also will return to Scotfest at 10 am on Saturday.
Admission is $6 for adults and free for children under 12 years of age. For more information on the festival or to sign up for events, visit the event's website at www.okscotfest.com.
