The Queen Mary is pleased to welcome back the annual ScotsFestival & International Highland Games XXV February 17-18 from 9AM-6PM. Experience the rich culture and history of Scotland first hand through an array of authentic activities, athletics, dancing, entertainment and cuisine in ode to the Queen Mary's Scottish legacy.

Eighty-eight years ago, in the quaint seaside town of Clydebank, Scotland, construction began on the Queen Mary. Exemplifying the finest craftsmanship of the country, the Queen Mary's legacy is undeniable and today the ship's heritage is celebrated through the two-day ScotsFestival honoring Scottish culture.

ScotsFestival honors nearly fifty Scottish clans & vendors throughout the weekend with professional and amateur competitions in piping, drumming, massed bands, darts, Highland dancing, and Highland athletics. The Scottish Highland Games, a precursor to today's Olympic Games, were designed to test the strength, skill, and technique of ancient warriors by face offs.

Whisky tasting sessions with aged malt experts and craft beer samplings are available for adult festivalgoers while the wee laddies & lassies can bear witness to Queen Mary's coronation, knighting ceremonies and even take part in the Wee Highland games.
