SCOTTISH WEEKEND - 36TH EDITION. In 1986, a few enthusiasts organised for the first time a one-day pipe band competition in Bokrijk, Genk. It was a great success thanks to the commitment, passion and persuasiveness of the founders. Since 1994, the Grand Commandery Alden Biesen in Bilzen has been the new & beautiful location for this unique event. The organisation soon expanded the one-day competition with a solo competition, Highland Games and Highland Dancing spread over two full days. With this, the Scottish Weekend was born in 1989! The programme has grown over the years with folk performances, the Scottish market, (children's) animation and much more. In the meantime, the Scottish Weekend has built up a great reputation both in Belgium and in Europe as an attractive festival that is also family-friendly. In 2007 it was decided to add Friday evening to the festival weekend so that visitors can enjoy the Celtic atmosphere and culture for 3 days. Ideal for young and old. In 2003, the organisation of the European Pipe Band Championship was also awarded, a recognition of the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association (RSPBA). To be proud of as Limburgers!
Moreover, during the weekend you will be able to enjoy the "DARK SCOTSMAN" (Sweet Milk Stout - alc 7.0% vol), a new beer by Microbrouwerij De Rechter from Hasselt, specially brewed for the 36th Scottish Weekend! A must-try!
