Ligonier Highland Games

We're gathering the Clans (and fans of the Clans) at the Ligonier Highland Games! Join us for the 2021 Games on September 18th, complete with kilt-wearing caber tossers, pipers, Highland Fling dancers, Scottish shortbread, fiddlers, storytellers, hammer throwers, and vendors of Celtic items! Idlewild Park in scenic Ligonier is the perfect place to host this outdoor celebration of all things Scottish! As you wander through the leafy paths of the park, you can sample Scottish food, music, games, and more – all in one day! Open-air pavilions provide shade for competitions and exhibitions of Highland dance, harp, fiddling, and Gaelic Mod (a competition involving Gaelic song, music, poetry and storytelling. The large open field at the end of Idlewild Park allows you to cheer on the athletes, hear a pipe band, or watch as the members of the gathered Clans parade around the field. Come out to enjoy this celebration of Scottish heritage: • Piping, drumming, and pipe band exhibitions • Scottish Harp and Fiddling workshops and competitions • Traditional Scottish heavy athletic events (Caber toss, Braemar Stone Put, Hammer Throw and more!) • Highland dancing competitions and Scottish country dancing demonstrations • The timeless tradition of Gaelic Mod singing • Children's games and Scottish storytelling • Continuous music from professional Celtic performers on three stages • Celtic vendors – from food to jewelry to an amazing array of tartan items • Clan and genealogy tents – explore the history of the clans and your own Scottish roots.
