35th edition of the Scottish Weekend postponed
New date: 10, 11 and 12 September 2021
The 35th edition of the Scottish Weekend has been postponed until next year due to the uncertainties surrounding the Corona-crisis.
The Scottish Weekend has successfully celebrated 34 editions already and is one of the leading international cultural events in Limburg. With participants from tens of different countries and thousands of visitors from both within and beyond our nation’s borders, the Scottish Weekend has become a household name on Alden Biesen’s agenda.
For an international organisation at this level, there absolutely need to be a number of basic certainties in place. Naturally, we are hopeful that circumstances will soon change for the better, but the autumn will definitely not be the right time yet to organize a grand international gathering in a cozy and warm context. Besides, our 35th edition is supposed to be festive and grand!
Chairman Pieter Jans confirms: “We know that September feels like a long time away still, but logistically, it is much closer than it seems. We had come a long way in our preparations for this 35th edition already. And now would be the time to book plane tickets, make hotel reservations, confirm bands and market exhibitors, that’s why we had to make this decision now.”
“We are hoping to see you all again next year, for an extra festive 35th edition in true festival context, fitting for anniversary celebrations!”

For everyone's safety : the organisation will not allow big bags, rucksacks or coolers onto the festival grounds.
The Scottish weekend is part of the summer folk festivals. All Flemish folk festivals can be found here.
