Ceud mille failte!
(A hundred thousand welcomes!)




Why fly to Scotland? The traditions of Highland music, games, and dance come alive at the McHenry Highland Festival! Visit the Clan tents and Celtic vendors. Kiss the highland cattle, watch the collies herd sheep, or pat an Irish Wolfhound. Join us for Saturday's Celtic celebration– for young and old alike–in the scenic highlands of Western Maryland at Deep Creek Lake.

Take a look at the events offered at the 2014 Fair!



The McHenry Highland Festival will not be held in 2015.
