The Queen Mary presents the annual ScotsFestival & International Highland Games XXI!  Guests will catch a glimpse of Scotland’s rich culture by  watching world champions compete for reigning titles, or testing their own might and skill during novice demonstrations and contests.

Eighty-three years ago, in a small seaside town in Scotland called Clydebank, construction began on the RMS Queen Mary. Exemplifying the fine craftsmanship of Scotland, the Queen Mary’s Scottish legacy is undeniable. The ship’s glorious heritage is celebrated annually with a two-day festival honoring her Scottish roots.

The Queen Mary’s ScotsFestival showcases nearly fifty Scottish clans and vendors amidst a weekend of spirited professional and amateur competitions in piping, drumming, massed bands, darts, Highland dancing, and athletics. Scottish Highland Games, a pre-cursor to the Olympic Games, were designed to test the strength, skill and technique of ancient warriors by face offs in stones, hammer throw, weights for distance, weight over bar, sheaf and the famed caber toss.

Weekend festivities kick off with a Grand Parade and Address to the Haggis and include Border Collie sheep-herding, firing demonstrations, and historic re-enactments daily. Adult guests can partake in whisky tasting sessions with aged malt experts, and craft beer samplings while the wee laddies and lassies bear witness to Queen Mary’s coronation, knighting ceremonies, and even take part in wee Highland games. Saturday night’s “Rock YerKilt” concert features the best Scottish Rock & Celtic bands around.

“The annual ScotsFestival and Highland Games is a truly unique event that pays homage to the Queen Mary’s storied history,” commented Steve Sheldon, Director of Entertainment Events at Queen Mary. “It gives visitors a chance to experience Scotland’s finest right here in Long Beach.”

The Pirate’s Dinner Adventure is set aboard an authentically replicated 18th-century Spanish galleon measuring 46 feet long, 18 feet wide with 40-foot masts. The ship is anchored in a 300,000-gallon indoor lagoon with night sky lighting. Surrounding the lagoon is a six-sided showroom of six additional ships where you are seated to observe the show!

Voyagers on each of the six ships have their own fearless pirate mascot whom they cheer on as the adventure unfolds with a cast of a dozen actors, singers, and stunt performers engaging in a bounty of action-packed exploits, accompanied by cannon blasts, pyrotechnics, and plenty of laughs.
