Melbourne Tartan Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

12 Jul 2019 to 21 Jul 2019

The Scots are coming to Melbourne. Join them in celebration of modern Scottish culture.

Experience your first taste of haggis, it’s delicious, promise. Wash it down with some unique single malt whisky sourced from the finest distilleries in Scotland. Take in a film from the Mini British Film Festival Scottish selection or enjoy a high energy Ceilidh dance.

Don’t forget to pack your black tie and dancing shoes for the gala dinner and concert at the iconic Melbourne Town Hall. Families can see and try bagpipes, learn Scottish country dancing, try a haggis burger, design a tartan, have their photo taken with a cute Scottish terrier on Family Day.

There will be pop up and ‘flash mob’ events in Melbourne’s CBD throughout the ten days of the Melbourne Tartan Festival. You don’t have to be Scottish to join in, all are welcome.
