 2022 Honored Youth 

Thomas Vanhorn

name is Kaycee Van Horn, I've been coming
to the festival for 13 years, my whole life. Some
of my favorite things to do at the festival are shop,
help, and most of all seeing friends and family.
This past year I've been learning how to play the
saxophone. I first heard a saxophone at the tattoo
and that inspired me to learn how to play it. I have
a lot of great memories at the festival and always
look forward to make more. I'm very grateful to be
the honored youth this year, thank you for this
honor.My name is Kaycee Van Horn, I've been coming

The Longs Peak Scottish Irish Highland Festival has been a highlight of September in Estes Park for 46 years; with Celtic Music, Ethnic Dancing, Bag Pipe Bands, Scottish Highland Athletics, representatives of many Clans.

In the early 1970's Estes Park was like most mountain towns relying on summer tourism with ended with Labor Day weekend.  45 years ago the festival's  founder, a resident of Estes Park, had a vision to extend the fall season to the valley.  He started this festival recognizing that September was a beautiful time for people to come to the mountains and with the perfect temperature, all that was needed was an event.  And the Longs Peak Scottish Irish Highland Festival came into being.  Over the years this Festival has become the most attended event in Estes Park.
  The festival has run into some difficulties for 2020. The event followed all the rules and recommendations that the local, county and state requested, applying for the required variance through the county health department, providing all the requested information.  The festival has been able to survive several down turns over the 45 years, but nothing like this, it is in a very vulnerable situation to see its 46th year.

  
The festival has managed to stay afloat since the shut down, utilizing the available government loans for payroll and planning, but with no revenue coming in and with the county shutting the majority of the festival down, we are concerned with our ability to even repay these loans, much less prepare for 2022.   
This particular festival has provided an important cultural and educational experience for 44 years, we need your help to keep this event going for the 46th year. 
Your support will allow us to continue to provide the culture experience in 2021 and forward into the future.
