Bring your family and friends for a charming Scottish day-adventure full of entertainment, feats of triumph and fun activities for the 66th annual games.

Enjoy the traditional features of Scottish Highland Games, such as massed bands, pipe band exhibitions, individual piping, heavy athletics and highland dancing.

There are also children’s games where they can take their turn at the Caber Toss (pint-sized, of course)!

View performances of Scottish highland and country dancing, and delight in the beautifully entertaining Celtic bands throughout the day.

Take old-fashioned pleasure in viewing the “hielan’ coos” (highland cattle) exhibition, sheepherding exhibition, Clydesdale horse exhibition and blacksmith demonstrations all day.

Participate in “the Scots vs. the Irish” tug of war competition following the Opening Ceremonies.

Visit the clan tents to discover whether you have Scottish ancestry, and shop at the Scottish and Celtic merchant booths.

Visit the British Car exhibit and see great examples of 1950s, 1960s and 1970s Austin-Healeys, Jaguars, Austin Minis, MGTDs and MGBs. This is a special treat for auto lovers.

And don’t forget to check out the Celtic entertainers on two stages and our vendors.
