Batesville, Lyon Preparing for Annual Scottish Festival

BATESVILLE, AR - The sounds of bagpipes will once again echo throughout the Ozarks soon, turning the foothills of Independence County into the Scottish Highlands for three days when the 28th Annual Arkansas Scottish Festival sets up camp at Lyon College, beginning April 20.

Last year, nearly 10,000 people attended the festival, and Lyon officials expect even more this year.

The event will feature an array of activities and exhibits, including bagpipers, Scottish clans, Highland dancers, drummers, falconry, "kilted" golf, sheepdog demonstrations and live music. 

Two-day passes for the festival are $18 for adults, and $12 for students age 13-17.  Saturday-only passes are $12 for adults in advance, and $14 at the gate, and $8 for youth ages 13-17 and $10 at the gate.  Sunday-only advance passes are $8 and $12 at the gate, and $6 for youth (13-17) in advance at $8 at the gate.

All children 12-and-under accompanied by an adult will be admitted free.

More information is available by calling 870-698-4382.
