We're growing our vendors for 2022!

At the Festival you'll find a wide range of retail vendors including master jewelers with Celtic designs, Scottish artwork and crests, Celtic apparel (including kilts), local jewelry, and much more.


To make room for the large increase in vendors we're doubling our outdoor vendor locations by opening up our vendor arcade next to the arena.
