Scottish Stalls

The Hororata Highland Games is a Scottish-themed event. Preference will be given to stallholders selling Scottish products or who have a Scottish Theme.

Be in the running for the Best Dressed Scottish Stall. The winner will be announced at the event during the afternoon and will receive publicity on the event’s social media sites post-event and a free site at the 2025 Hororata Highland Games.

Even if you don’t have Scottish products, you can still theme your stall. We would love to see many stalls taking up the challenge. To help you with this, you can purchase Scottish Flag Bunting on the application form for $10 for 5m.

Registrations and Licenses

Volunteer stalls selling food for fundraising purposes are not required to provide this; however, they are expected to abide by all food regulations and laws.

Stallholders offering activities to the public at the event must provide Health and Safety information, including Hazard Management Plans and Certificates of Insurance. If your application is successful, the Hororata Community Trust will request this information closer to the event date.

Please note that applications by stallholders promoting or selling products or services which conflict or compete with our sponsors’ products or services won’t be accepted. Likewise, these products or services cannot be promoted or sold at the Hororata Highland Games.
