BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — The three day Scotfest kicks off Friday night at Broken Arrow Events Park, celebrating Celtic history, music and heritage.

Organizers plan all year round and expect 30,000 people at at this year’s 40th annual Scotfest.

Celebrating four decades in Green Country, organizers tell 2 Works for You this year there will be even more vendors, a larger variety of food and whiskey tasting.

Plus, a third music stage has been added to hold the more than a dozen acts performing over the weekend.

Scotfest’s Executive Director Steve Campbell said they’ve also brought back competitive sanctioned piping competitions.

There’s also plenty for the kiddos to enjoy in the kids area with movies playing, and arts and crafts.

Campbell said with large crowds expected, they’ve made getting to the event easier.

“Parking will be all at northeastern state university, NSU’s parking area," said Campbell. "We’ll have shuttles that run continuously all weekend long, bringing people onto the park and then we’ll also have pick up and drop off points for Lyft and Uber right at the entrance as well."

Campbell said public safety is a priority every year, working alongside the city of Broken Arrow, as well as the police and fire departments, to make sure plans are place in case anything were to happen.

The event starts at 5 pm.
