Columbus Scottish Festival cancels September event

Columbus Scottish Festival organizers are calling off this year’s event due to concerns over COVID-19. The announcement was made this weekend that the 29th annual event will be postponed until 2021.

Organizers said that while they love to share Scottish culture in Columbus with southern Indiana, the risk of endangering the health of participants meant holding the event was not an option.

The event would have been held September 12th and 13th.

The Scottish Festival will have an online component through social media and the organizing committee is looking for ways to commemorate the missing festival. You can get more information on facebook at or at their website at
