Welcome to the WSF


Important Announcement


We regretfully announce that we have decided to cancel the Winnipeg Scottish Festival planned for Saturday, March 21, 2020. We did not make this decision lightly, but feel the health and safety of our pipe band community is paramount to us. The Province of Manitoba has recommended that one of the Best practices regarding Covid-19 is to avoid large social gatherings and practice social distancing.

The Province of Manitoba’s most recent Bulletin on the COVID-19 issue is located at https://news.gov.mb.ca/news/index.html?item=46933&posted=2020-03-13

We believe that cancelling our event is the responsible thing to do.

We are looking at the most efficient way of refunding entries and will be in contact with individual registrants over the next few weeks. Any questions or concerns can be directed to registration@winnipegscottishfestival.com

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Céad míle fáilte! (Scottish Gaelic – A Hundred Thousand Welcomes)

After a successful 2019, we’re very much looking forward to the 27th Winnipeg Scottish Festival taking place on Saturday, March 21, 2020.
We’re pleased to announce we’re returning to the downtown campus at the University of Winnipeg! Band events will take place in the beautiful and acoustically friendly Eckhardt Gramatte Hall (see below), with solo events taking place in adjacent classrooms and lecture halls. 
The downtown location provides an excellent landscape in terms of accommodations and amenities. The Holiday Inn & Suites is steps away from the University of Winnipeg and we’re in the process of arranging a group rate for traveling bands. 
We’ve got an excellent panel of adjudicators once again, all of whom sit on the RSPBA panel: Terry Lee, Bob Worrall, Ken Eller, Duncan Millar
Please don’t hesitate to contact me directly should you have any questions regarding WSF 2020.
Thanks for your time, and we hope to see you all in 2020!
