  1. I always enjoy the dance competitions – I myself competed (and placed!) in the Festival’s Irish dancing competitions back in the early 2000s. While I love Highland dancing, I feel like there used to be significantly more Irish dance represented 10 years ago. Will there be any Irish dancing at this year’s festival?

    Thanks! I can’t WAIT to bring my family this year. :-)

  2. Are patrons of this event permitted to wear their own swords as part of their traditional dress? In past years this was permitted but I’d rather confirm it first.

    1. The insurance company will not allow swords outside of those who are providing entertainment and hold their own liability insurance. Thanks for checking!!

  3. I see Handicapped Parking is available…just wondering, in years past and there had been rain,,,,straw was put down,,,,,good idea,,,have wheelchair family member who wants to come….thanks for your reply….love,,,,love,,,,the Festival….

    1. We will have straw to put down in the case of rain. If you are in need of any additional assistance please ask one of our volunteers and we will happily send over a festival golf cart to take you where you would need to go as well. Lets hope for good weather :)

  4. Are people allowed to bring folding chairs? Are we allowed to “tailgate” – bring food & drinks, as to stay all day? Can you go out & in to the festival? FYI… I think a Q&A section on the website might be very beneficial to many. Thanks.

    1. Yes, folding chairs are allowed at the festival. We cannot permit outside food and drink but have many options at the festival! WE look forward to seeing you this weekend!

    2. Just to be clear although we cannot allow all of the general public to bring in food and drinks, we do allow Clans to bring in food and non-alcoholic drinks! Thanks!!!

  5. We want to bring our small dog. He has a license tag which requires proof of rabies shots. Is that enough to allow him into the event with us? We are driving 75 miles to attend this event and would like to know what is needed by way of ‘paperwork’ for him before we get there.

    1. Oh no! We had no idea! I am contacting them right now to make sure they have fixed the issue. Please let us know if you find it is still a problem. I am so sorry about that!

  6. We will bringing our Scottish Terrior Puppy, and are not sure how long he can go before someone has to transport him. Can we bring a wagon into the event so he can ride? Will the wagon be able to go into the buildings?

    1. No problem with the wagon :). We do require that all dogs have their rabies vaccinations so please have proof of rabies and a non retractable leash!! We look forward to having you at the festival!

  7. Will I be able to leave and return once I have purchased a one day ticket? Looking forward to the event but have some other commitments that day.

    1. WE reached out to them for this year but I am afraid we were too late to get them! We will try again next year. We LOVE them! Great music and great people!
