8:00 AM - 10:00 PM Highland Games and Scottish Festival
Scotland has proud traditions of independent and innovative thinking, and the Edinboro Highland Games and Scottish Festival celebrates that heritage.

Please join us for the 26th Annual Edinboro Highland Games & Scottish Festival September 3-8, featuring exceptional music, dance, athletics, art, food, and family gatherings! From beer tastings by local brewers to kids' games and student competitions, the festival offers fun for all ages.

The main festival events and games will be held throughout Saturday, Sept. 7, on the campus of Edinboro University. Bagpipe music will fill the air throughout the day, while pipe bands and soloists march together and compete against one another. Between the impromptu concerts, musical tent and numerous workshops, burly athletes will toss various weighty objects on the back lawns as part of the ever-popular heavy athletic competitions. Those events include the caber toss, hammer, stone and 56-pound weights for height and distance.
