The McMinnville Scottish Festival, an event hosted by the Celtic Heritage Alliance, Inc. (CHA), celebrates the diverse cultures of the seven Celtic nations. We highly encourage our vendors to dress for the occasion, and to decorate their booths accordingly; as a special incentive, we will award a prize for the “best dressed” booth!
In previous years holding the event in Newport, OR, the Festival averaged approximately 6,500 patrons during its weekend. Feedback from vendors has been very positive; however, we surveyed those who participated and used that information to improve your vendor experience moving forward.
