Grab your clan and get ready for a Highland fling. Spend Sunday, November 26 soaking up the vibrant atmosphere and sampling Scottish products, food and drinks at Overnewton Castle for Saint Andrew's Day.
In Scotland, and many countries with Scottish connections, Saint Andrew's Day is marked with a celebration of Scottish culture, and with traditional Scottish food and music. Overnewton Castle was built by William Taylor in 1849, a Scot!
William Taylor bought 13,000 acres of rich grazing land just west of the Keilor township.
He originally built a simple single-story bluestone colonial-style homestead of 6 rooms but when he returned from a trip to Scotland in 1859 he set about turning his functional colonial homestead into a miniature Scottish Baronial Castle. The Stately two-storied wing was added, along with the blue stone Dairy & Butcher Shop and the Private Billiard room.
Overnewton Castle’s history tours and high tea operate on the first Sunday of each month but on this occasion, the focus is Scottish entertainment including a procession of Bag-pipes starting at midday.
Enjoy a massive line-up of acts, artists, and activities for all ages with amazing vendors and performers.
A display of the Castle's history and founder, William Taylor will also be exhibited in the Castle's Chapel room.
Overnewton Castle will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the annual Scottish festival and market day to celebrate St Andrews Day.
Tickets are $10 to $15 and are available on Eventbrite.
