The Taste of Scotland Festival is held each Father’s Day Weekend in Historic Franklin, NC is filled with Scottish fun, food, fashion, music, dance, and culture for the whole family!

The event celebrates Franklin’s Scots-Irish Heritage very appropriately as we have one of the highest concentrations of Scots-Irish decedents in the country. This is truly unique Scottish festival is far different than Highland Games. Think of it as a sampling of everything Scottish! At the Taste of Scotland,​ you can enjoy authentic Scottish Foods, Music, Dancers, Clans, Border Collie Demonstrations, Parade of Clans & Tartans, Scottish Crafters and Children’s Highland Games, plus continuous Live Entertainment.
