Oklahoma Celebrates SCOTFEST This Weekend

It’s that time of year again, when fall is upon us and SCOTFEST comes to Tulsa! This annual three-day weekend celebration features a number of activities and entertainment that capture the Celtic spirit.

SCOTFEST was first celebrated in Oklahoma in 1980. Due to increasing attendance, the festival began moving to bigger and bigger locations and expanding the length of the event. As the years passed, the feast became a three-day event and has been hosted by Tulsa’s River West Festival Park since 2005. It continues to be the biggest and longest-running Celtic music festival in Oklahoma.

During the SCOTFEST, a number of Highland Games take place, including the hammer throw, sheaf tossing, caber tossing, and the braemar stone. These are highly competitive and go on all day on Saturday and Sunday.

If you love to listen to music, over 10 live bands will be playing their songs onstage throughout the festival, including Celtica-Pipes Rok, the Killdares, and Wicked Tinkers. Pipes and drums, as well as Irish dances will give all of Tulsa a taste of the Celtic culture. There will also be whiskey tastings, an excellent selection of Scottish foods, and beer and craft vendors.

So, head out and enjoy SCOTFEST this weekend at the River West Festival Park, located at 2100 S Jackson Ave, Tulsa. Afterward, come to Enso downtown, where you can keep the party going with dance beats from Speedbump on Friday and DJ Moody on Saturday.
