Middle Tennessee Highland Games

September 7 - September 8

This annual festival was created to bring together families to learn, appreciate, preserve, and celebrate Scottish and Celtic traditions for charitable, educational, social, and athletic purposes. Everyone is invited to explore the Celtic history that played a large part in settling much of Tennessee while learning about individual family clans’ heritage. Past attendees have even found a piece of their own ancestry after talking with some of the 60 Scottish families/clans at the festival.

Within the festival are Scottish Highland athletic competitions for male and female athletes, including Stone Put, Caber Toss, Hammer Throw, Sheaf Toss and Weight Throws. Bring your blanket and lawn chairs to cheer on these athletes as they compete for medals.

There will be a full slate of music, including solo piping, drumming and pipe band competitions, as well as national touring bands and local artists playing throughout the day for a full weekend of music for attendees to enjoy.
