Come Party with the Scots!

For 58 years, representatives of Scottish Clans from around the country have gathered here in Salado on the second weekend each November to honor the history and traditions of Scotland and the Scots pioneers who settled in this area…making the Salado Scottish Gathering and Highland Games the oldest Scottish festival in Texas.

men in kilts, shopping, food and more. One of the event’s main features is the Clan Village, the largest gathering of Scottish Clan tents in Texas where Clan members share information about Scottish history and family genealogy.
