The Second Annual Scotoberfest will be held at the Stirling Commons building in Dunedin on Friday October 21st from 5pm to 11pm and Saturday October 22nd from noon to 11pm. Admission is free and open to the public.
Food & drink, music, shopping and a pumpkin patch are the focus of this fun weekend festival which highlights the Scottish heritage of the Dunedin community.
A special scavenger hunt called “Find the Stein” will lead visitors through each of the merchants in the building. Every shop has a hand painted stein to commemorate Scotoberfest 2011, which guests will have to locate. After guests find each stein, they will be entered in a raffle to win a grand prize provided by the merchants.
The local band Stiff Upper Lip, an AC/DC tribute band, will be performing Friday night from 8pm to 11pm. Tampa’s Celtic fusion band Lucid Druid will perform Saturday night from 8pm to 11pm.
