ABOUT THE SCOTTISH TARTAN FESTIVAL

The Scottish Tartan Festival is held annually each spring in April to commemorate the rich culture of our Celtic ancestors who came to this country in decades past. It is our hope to contribute to the awareness and knowledge of the Scottish, Irish and Celtic heritage in the region of Northeast and Central Louisiana, East Texas, and South Arkansas. Providing examples of traditional music and dance and demonstrating historical trades, martial arts and games are some of the ways we attempt to achieve this goal.

Starting out as a picnic for Scottish Society of the Louisiana Highlands members on the present-day site of Scotland Farms, a farm of Highland Cattle owned by Dr. Alan Cameron, the event grew each year until it became the full-fledged festival it is today.

ABOUT THE SCOTTISH SOCIETY OF THE LOUISIANA HIGHLANDS

Founded in 1996, the original organization included members from all over the northern region of Louisiana from Shreveport to Monroe. Out of the main group, two separate entities were later formed and the Shreveport group renamed itself the Scottish Society of the Louisiana Highlands, and has remained thus since that time. Our mission is to help educate the people of Louisiana about the rich Scottish heritage and culture from which many of us in this region can trace our roots.
