The Scottish Tartans Museum is represented at many Scottish festivals and Highland Games in the southeastern US.  Typically, museum staff and volunteers will travel with name reference books, tartan swatches, and our computer database to set up a tent and help the many games visitors answer the question, "What's my tartan?"  Museum representatives also answer many other questions on Highland Dress and Scottish culture and history.

Once a year, at the Stone Mountain Highland Games in Georgia, the museum also brings much of its gift shop inventory to set up a large tent where we sell many imported tartan and related gifts, as a fund raiser for our museum.  The pictures below are from the 2004 Stone Mountain Highland Games, and were taken by Bisell McWilliams III, member of the Friends of the Scottish Tartans Museum.
