Orillia Scottish Festival
After 43 years the annual Orillia Scottish Festival has been added to the long list of growing
cancelled events due to the coronavirus. The committee feels this is the best decision in the
interests of our bands and the publics health and safety to cancel our 2020 festival. This being
the first time in its history it has had to be cancelled.
The annual July event is the only Scottish Festival north of Toronto, bringing over 40,000 visitors
including bagpipe bands from around Canada and abroad to the City of Orillia. The favourite
downtown parade leads people to the mass bands playing in Couchiching Beach Park.
We wish to thank all of our sponsors and supporters and give a big shout out to our team of volunteers
whom work diligently through out the year for the success of our festival, we could not make it happen
We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols of Public Health Officials during this
unprecedented time in our world. We wish everyone good health and safety and look forward
to seeing everyone in July 16,17,18 2021 for the Best Scottish Festival yet.
After all we are all a Little Bit Scottish!
