This event is open to the general public with free admission.
For 2019, the festival will return to the Radford University campus where it was proudly held for a number of years before moving to Bisset Park in 2014 due to several construction and renovation projects. The festival is scheduled for October 12, 2019 and will feature the famed heavyweight games, live entertainment, food, vendors, and festivities for all ages. The festival is a partnership between Radford University and the City of Radford, VA.
Whether a family’s background is of Scots-Irish origin or of other descent, the day always brings with it an air of excitement and anticipation. There is no place more beautiful than Southwest Virginia in the fall and the Blue Ridge Mountains provide a beautiful back-drop for the fall festival.
