About The Festival

Celebrating Scottish traditions, embracing the World!

WELCOME TO MCPHERSON FESTIVAL OF CULTURES

For more than 20 years, McPherson was home to the annual McPherson Scottish Festival featuring Highland games, Celtic music, dance and food.

In 2016, festival organizers broadened the event to include all nationalities and renamed the event McPherson Festival of Cultures.

Enhancements celebrate the community’s diverse ethnic heritage and encourage festival attendance by both locals and visitors.

The Highland games and pipe band events continue to entertain the crowds while a full slate of live music, demonstrations, market booths and food vendors embrace the world.

Speaker
Smithfield Fair presents a variety of original songs and traditional adaptations that transport listeners out of their day-to-day with a hopefulness and a reflection on better times and themes. Their uncommon music is folk-based, but awash with elements of swing, gospel, Celtic, blues, and swamp pop, attesting to their upbringing in the musical crossroads of the deep south. Read More

FORTY-THREE YEARS OF UNCOMMON MUSIC

With thirteen seasons and two well-received tours of Ireland and Scotland under their belt, Tullamore stands as one of the Heartland's premiere Celtic bands. Mark Clavey, Mary Hanover, and Rachel Gaither deliver the music of Ireland and Scotland in rich and clear vocals, tight harmonies and instrumentals, and cool and clever arrangements.  Tullamore draws rave reviews from their audiences everywhere they go.
