Everfest's Take

From the Organizer

The Kern County Scottish Games has something for everyone! Join us at the Kern County Fairgrounds (1142 South P St, Bakersfield CA) on Saturday March 25th, 2017 and enjoy a bit of Scotland in Bakersfield. Gates open at 9 am and opening ceremonies begin at noon. Visit the Tea Room, enjoy the Scotch Tasting, listen to traditional Celtic Music and Celtic Rock Bands, find out about your clan (Scottish Ancestors), try Scottish fare including a banger, haggis, and a cold pint, watch the herding dog demonstration, take the kids to the petting zoo, watch the re-enactors and learn about ancient times in Scotland, marvel at the heavy Scottish Athletics competition (including men and women in kilts throwing items like cabers - which resemble telephone poles!), take the kids to the Kids Athletic Area and let them have some fun, become a member of the Kern County Scottish Society, visit the vendor area and find a kilt in your tartan or buy the kids a wooden sword, enter the raffle to win great prizes, watch and listen to the Pipe Bands and watch the pipe and drum competition, watch dancers, enter the Haggis Hurl or Bonny Knees contest, and make sure you're there for the Opening Ceremonies (noon) to see the Massed Pipe Bands lead the March of the Clans.
