Event Details

The 6th oldest Scottish festival in the US.

 

This event features the North American Scottish Athletics Championship, US West Coast Drum Corps Championship, NW Regional Harp Finals, colorful pipe bands, and Highland dancers. Plus there’s Scottish foods and drink, Scottish breed animals, clan tents and vendors selling lovely goods imported from the British Isles, and Celtic performers. 

Marvel at the athleticism as titans deftly toss the caber. Behold the grace and elegance of the Scottish dancers. Delight in Celtic harpists, bagpipes, and the cadence of the drums. 

Sample a wide variety of delicious and traditional Scottish foods.

The Rampant Lion Pub or the Tilted Kilt Pub offer a chance to raise a glass of Scottish style ales. Celtic Arts Showcase various local English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh dancers, musicians, and singers. Visit the encampment of the Northwest’s premier combat troupe, the Seattle Knights. Their performances include high-energy acting and choreographed stage combat using real steel weapons including broadswords, axes, and staves.

Take a stroll through the Avenue of the Clans, the Glen of the Clans, and Walk Through Time and delve into Scottish ancestry and heritage.

Observe the workmanship of Scottish artisans and imported goods from the British Isles at the Hall of the Vendors and the Celtic Marketplace. Enter the Scottish Heritage Speakers series and learn about the languages, myths, legends, and Celtic Warriors of ancient Scotland. Plus visit a Scottish Farm with shaggy Highland cattle, Blackface sheep, and Shetland pony. Complete your tour with the Celtic Kennel to see Celtic dog breeds at work and play.

Plan to attend the Ceilidh (Kay-lee) Saturday evening — a traditional Scottish party with music, sing-along, and Scottish country dancing.

The PNW Highland Games are a weekend of fun, education, and traditional Scottish activities, right here in the Pacific Northwest!
