North Texas Irish Festival

Come visit us in the "Scottish Village," comprised of about 28 to 30 clans and
Scottish-related societies. Better yet, get involved by joining one of them!

Thanks to all of you who stopped by our booth in 2019. It was a great festival for us! We met lots and lots of festival goers and had excellent "booth support" from our members... Thank you all and we look forward to seeing you again in 2020.

Member Sharon Wolf visits with guest.

at Fair Park, in Dallas. And yes ... that is the Hogwarts Railway pictured in front
of Sharon. It is a real steam train running in west-central Scotland, between
Fort William and the port city of Mallaig. You may ride it, when you visit
Scotland!   Below, former President Larry Duncan (right) speaks with another guest.
