Pipefest Barbados

Withover 100 pipers and drummers registered to take part – we are really looking forward to some great tunes in Barbados this May. We especially thank the Royal Barbados Police and Barbados Defence Force Bands for their support.

Pipefest Intinerary

The Barbados Celtic Festival celebrates the links between Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Nova Scotia, the Gallic regions in Europe and the sunny Caribbean island of Barbados. What better way to celebrate than with 100 pipers!


Pipefest Barbados will take place over 4 days but is best suited to players who want to visit the island for  a week.

Allan Mackay's Ford AngliaGet ready to start your bagpipes! Not only is it part of the Barbados Celtic Festival it takes place at the same time as Rally Barbados. Look out for Scotsman, Allan Mackay from Brora, in his blue Ford Anglia! The Massed Pipe Bands will be piping-in the Scottish teams to the opening of the Rally.

Weather: with events taking place in May this is a great month to visit Barbados with nearly 9 hours of sunshine and strong cooling winds. Pipe band events will take place in the evening when the average temperature is expected to be around 31°C / 88°F. Short sleeve order – pack light, enjoy the warmth, pipe band events will be in short sleeve order, No. 2 dress.
