Description:
Radford University and the City of Radford present the 23rd Radford Highlanders Festival on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at Radford University's Moffett Lawn.

The Radford Highlanders Festival returns to the Radford University campus and brings together Scottish Highland Games, Celtic music, massed pipe and drum band performance, Scottish clan march, sheepherding demonstrations, craft and food vendors and family friendly entertainment for festival lovers of all ages.

Music will be headlined by this year by Scythian and Crossbow.

The lawn of Moffett quad will turn into an open-air extravaganza featuring artists, vendors, craftspeople and community organizations. Start holiday shopping early or treat yourself to something special from one of the many vendors with a diverse and interesting set of clothing, accessories, jewelry and crafts.

Over the past 20+ years, the festival has more than tripled in size, and now attracts an estimated crowd of 10,000 people. Whether a family’s background is of Scots-Irish origin or of other descent, the day always brings with it an air of excitement and anticipation. There is no place more beautiful than Southwest Virginia in autumn and the Blue Ridge Mountains provide a beautiful back-drop for the fall festival.

Admission is free and and all are welcome.

The festival is a joint partnership with the City of Radford and Radford University.
