Grandfather Mountain Highland Games

July 8-12, 2021

Founded in 1956, the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games and Gathering of the Scottish Clans are considered America’s grandest Scottish-themed games.

The spectacular setting in MacRae Meadows at the base of historic Grandfather Mountain provides an ideal setting. The games include brawny athletes, delicate dancers, noisy bagpipe band parades, rocking Celtic music and plenty of kilts. Visit the heritage tent to research your family tree and then head to the merchant tents to find your family tartan.

It’s four memorable days of Scottish heritage in the High Country of North Carolina.
