Events and Festivals

Though we’re a hard working people rooted on the farm, we’ve always been partial to festivals and get-togethers. This spirit goes all the way back to the old Scottish Fair in Laurel Hill, which began in 1783, the year the American Revolution officially ended. The annual event drew people from miles around and was only terminated when revelers became so unruly that citizens began to complain.

Today, our festivals and events are reflective of the many cultural textures and traditions that make up our communities from the Southern storyteller’s art to the old cotton planter culture to the Kuumba African-American Festival to the Highland Games.

In addition, we have many venues and sites that can host special events and occasions. From family reunions to weddings to corporate functions Scotland County has a venue to serve as your perfect host.
