Ligonier Highland Games at Idlewild Park
Each year in September, the clans of Scotland gather at Idlewild Park to celebrate Celtic culture with the Ligonier Highland Games. Here, brawny athletes compete by tossing the caber and throwing the Scottish hammer. Musically, there are competitions in piping, fiddling, drumming and harp. Dancers step for awards in Highland and Scottish country categories. And there are classic Gaelic Mod contests.
The Best of Celtic Culture
in Our Own Backyard
Bagpipe bands will mass and perform on an open field, filling the
air with their stirring sounds. There are Scottish-bred dog events
and children’s games. Genealogy and history tents enable the curious
to trace their clan. Vendors sell Celtic wares including kilts,
tartans, jewelry, pottery and Scottish foods.
While the Games take place on Saturday only, there are other special related-events all weekend long, including a Ceilidh – a traditional social gathering – where Celtic performers from around the world perform!
