This year we had hoped to be able to sell advanced ticket sales as well as possibly accepting credit cards at the gates. Unfortunately the Virus has forced us to change these plans since we are unsure if we will even be able to hold this year's Highland Festival.  Please watch this site fort possible up dates . Please stay safe & healthy, wear your masks and keep up with the social distancing.

PLEASE be patient as all of us are trying to see if we will even be allowed to hold this year's Highland Festival due to the On-Going Virus, social distancing, etc.  We have NOT yet sent out our invites to the bands and we will try to keep you updated as soon as we learn more. Here we will provide a list of the Bagpipe Bands that will be performing throughout the day. We will also provide contact information for that band just in case you ever want to learn to play the bagpipes, the drums or have a request of that band to perform.
