Vendors, Clans, Food and Kids

What's a Highland Gathering without a wee bit of shopping, exploring Scottish Heritage and sampling Scottish food. Each year has something a bit different but always something that will please.


Do you sell merchandise with a Celtic connection? Then join our fair. The Highland Gathering attracts a large attendance and last years vendors reported excellent sales. Vendor tables are priced per 10-foot table. Click here for a vendor application form (deadline Friday June 19th , 2020)

Vendor applications are also open to businesses and organisations without a direct Celtic connection that feel they would ad value to our gathering and visitors to our event.

Vendors may setup Saturday evening June 27th at their own risk or between 7:00 and 9:00 a.m. Sunday June 28th when the facility opens for setup on the day of the event.

Clan Tents

Do you have Scottish Heritage? If so, visit one of the clan tents to discover more about the origin and heritage of several clans. Even if you're not Scottish, enjoy the rich stories behind many of the Scottish names and tartans.

To Reserve a Clan Tent

  • NO CHARGE for tent space or principal clan participants.
