Though there is no official Taste of Scotland festival scheduled this year in Franklin, a few celebrations are still slated for Father’s Day weekend begining June 1. The events are carried over from the age-old Macon County event.
With the help of local entities, several Scottish activities will keep the festival alive.
The Taste of Scotland festival, which has traditionally been held annually during Father’s Day weekend in downtown Franklin, celebrates the music and culture of Scotland and the British Isles, with games, music, food, demonstrations and more. Research from the Governor's office in Raleigh revealed that more people with Scottish heritage reside in North Carolina than in Scotland.
