March 23 2019Winnipeg Scottish Festival

The Winnipeg Scottish Festival is made up of a group of dedicated volunteers who work together to promote Scottish Culture in Winnipeg. We promote all things Scottish and Celtic and provide an excellent opportunity for members of the local and neighbouring communities to get involved and showcase their talents and promote their wares. Pipers, drummers, dancers, heavy events athletes, and enthusiasts from all over Western Canada come to Winnipeg each year to participate in this exciting line-up of events. After a successful 25th Anniversary in 2018, we're very much looking forward to the 26th Winnipeg Scottish Festival taking place on Saturday, March 23, 2019.

2019 marks a new chapter for WSF, as we're pleased to announce we're moving the festival to the downtown campus at the University of Winnipeg! Band events will take place in the beautiful and acoustically friendly Eckhardt Gramatte Hall (see below), with solo events taking place in adjacent classrooms and lecture halls.

The downtown location provides an excellent landscape in terms of accommodations and amenities. The Holiday Inn & Suites is steps away from the University of Winnipeg and we're in the process of arranging a group rate for traveling bands. There will be more information to follow regarding events, accommodations, adjudicators, and social activities, but we wanted to pass along these details regarding the date and location of the event as soon as we were able to.
