We look forward to seeing you 5th October, 2024 at the Sharon Johnston Park in New Market, AL

Wild Scottish Stag

Festival Policy

  • Admission is free but there is a $10 per vehicle fee

  • The Sharon Johnston Park is an alcohol free venue

  • Well behaved and leashed pets are welcome



Should I bring a chair?

Most patrons bring a chair to watch the athletes.  Just keep in mind the festival covers a lot of ground and you can expect to do a lot of walking.

Is the festival a cash only event?

The festival is not strictly a cash only event.  However since it is held in a more remote location, POS systems and card swipers are not always reliable.  Please bring some cash as a backup.
