Entry $10 per person, payable at the gate. Free entry for children 12 and under.


 Pipes and Drums
The day will start with the Central Coast Scottish Spectacular Solo Piping Challenge and the Drum Major John McFarland Memorial Drumming Challenge. This will then be followed by the NSW Pipe Band Championships. Non competing bands and small groups may also play throughout the day before all joining together in the massed bands for the spectacular conclusion.

 Highland Games
Marvel at the strength of the competitors in the heavy events as they Toss the Caber (and some large rocks and beer kegs too!) The team from Highland Muscle love to have your support and welcome crowd participation. You can also take part in the kilted dash. Just make sure you're wearing a kilt (and run faster than everyone else) and you could win $100.

Market Stalls
The Central Coast Scottish Spectacular will include a wide range of market stalls including specialist suppliers to the Scottish dancing, drumming and piping community, Scottish interest stalls, local vendors and clan marquees so you can find out more about your Scottish heritage. Of course there will also be plenty of food and drink stalls offering a variety of options to tempt your taste buds.
Book a market stall.
Highland Dancing
The 2019 Central Coast Scottish Spectacular will feature both the NSW Highland Dancing Championships and the Central Coast Scottish National Dancing Titles. From the Fling and the Swords, to the Lilt and Sailor's Hornpipe, enjoy the grace and athleticism of the state's best highland dancers competing on the stage.

Discover your Scottish Heritage
Join the Central Coast Scots, find out more about your Clan, and learn some Scottish Country Dances. And when you are worn out from dancing, relax and recover with a Square Sausage, Haggis or some Black Pudding (and maybe some  Irn Bru to wash it down!) .
