The Festival is located at the Old City Park and Fairgrounds off East Ramsey Street in Buffalo, MO.

Come out and join us for an evening of Clan representation and good Celtic music. There will be food and other vendors available with items for sale. Friday night activities are free to the public and is a great time to purchase your advance tickets for Saturday's festivities at a reduction in price. On Saturday, Sept. 12th the festivities begin at 9AM with music at all three stages, vendors and wonderful food smells throughout the grounds. You will see the sheep, Highland and Dexter Cattle, the Welch ponies, the Clydesdales, llamas, listen to the storyteller, talk to the Clans, the kiddos will be able to enjoy the "Kids Realm" where they can try their skills at the mini games. Then try you luck at the hatchet throwing, or the miniature PUTT PUTT golf plus numerous other things to do. At noon there will be the Grand Parade leading off with the Bagpipers, the Buffalo School Band and the highlight of the parade is the performance by the Kilties. A full day of entertainment.


Highland Games

Don't you forget the Highland Games which also begins at 9AM. This year the SWMO Celtic festival has been chosen to be part of the Scottish Games League Heartland region, which means that if athletes attend our games they will be awarded points for the Scottish Games League (SGL) and there will be a final competition later in the season based on their points. So we are looking forward to many athletes attending the games this year. Come on and help cheer them on. They love your support. If anyone is interested in participating in the Athletic Games, please download an athletic form and send it in with your participation fee. We look forward to a great competition.
