SCOTFEST Welcomes Pipers and Drummers!

In the last 9 years, the SCOTFEST Board of Directors has worked tirelessly to grow our festival to the size we are today. In 2015, we estimated 20,000 attendees over the three-day weekend. With 2016, we’re looking to make it BIGGER and BETTER! We’ve been revered as one of the country’s premier Scottish Heritage festivals because of our very differing approach finding unique ways to meld tradition with entertainment. So far our gamble has paid off handsomely.

What about pipers? Well, we’re growing. In the past, we’ve been consistent in welcoming the best pipe bands from the state of Oklahoma but in recent years we’ve expanded into Texas, Kansas, and Arkansas. But in 2016 we’re selecting a few new pipe bands (that includes you) and inviting you to take part in our Band and solo competitions.

Come be a part of our explosive growth and make history as we continue to expose our musical heritage to thousands of new festival guests every year.

Sincerely,
the Board of Directors
SCOTFEST 2016
Tulsa, Oklahoma
