Middle Tennessee Highland Games

Presented by Good Neighbor Festivals at Percy Warner Park, Nashville TN

Sep 07 - 08
Middle Tennessee Highland Games

Highland Games are events held as a way of celebrating Scottish and Celtic culture, especially that of the Scottish Highlands. Certain aspects of the games are so well-known as to have become emblematic of Scotland and Ireland, such as the bagpipes, the kilt, and the heavy events.  The entertainment that fills the air for two full days, gives the event it’s joy and true celtic ambience. There is entertainment for all age groups, including a great Kids Zone and celtic crafts and sheep herding demonstrations.

For 2019, the festival is proud to feature…

  • Two stages of celtic traditional and celtic rock music.
  • Three bagpipe and drum bands who will roam the grounds and participate in a mass band gathering.
  • A dance stage featuring both Scottish and Irish dancers.
  • A solo bagpipe competition, open for all to watch.

Middle Tennessee Highland Games and Celtic Festival provides the chance for amateur athletes to compete in all the traditional Heavy Scottish Athletic events, to the thrill of a large crowd of fans. Men over 40 compete in the Masters Class and men under 40 compete in the Men’s class.

We also have a Women’s amateur class and a Women’s Masters class. Any athlete can sign up to compete by completing a form and submitting the $30 fee to the address on the form. Competitors are accepted on a first come first accepted basis.

All Classes are limited to 10, with 2 alternates. Awards are presented in all classes for the top 3 scores. Festival attendees can watch the competitions throughout the entire day on the Main Field, except for the hammer throw which is done on the Tournament Field.

Pre-registration deadline is July 31st OR until classes are full.
