The North Carolina Rural Heritage Center is home to many of Scotland County’s festivals and special events. These events include:
9th Annual Scotland County Highland Games: Held October 7, 2017 – Watch athletes compete in traditional events such as the caber, the hammer throw and the sheaf toss. And what would the games be without piping, drumming, dancing and Tartan glory. For more information visit www.carolina-highlandgames.com
34th Annual John Blue Cotton Festival: Held October 14th and 15th 2017 – It’s one thing to read books about rural life in the South 100 or more years ago. It’s another to experience it for yourself. And that’s what the John Blue Festival is all about-–bringing together the old and the new as we pay homage to our agricultural tradition. For more information visit www.johnblue-cottonfestival.com
Civil War Reenactments – Coming Spring 2018 – come out and watch Civil War Reenactments staged on the grounds of the Heritage Village. Check back for more information.
