Scottish Highland Games Information
On the first full weekend of June every year the Bellingham Highland Games Association holds it's annual Scottish Highland Games at Hovander Homestead Park in beautiful Ferndale Washington.
A Country Fair with Scottish Flair with something for everyone in the family! Scottish Highland Dancing, Heavy Athletics, Piping and Drumming, Scottish Country Dancing, Celtic Music Showcases, Food and Merchandise Vendors, Kids Games and our Ale & Wine Garden give more than ample entertainment for the whole family.
With a free Friday Night Ceiligh (Kay-lee) featuring the Blessing of the Games and the Ale where we tap our Firkin for the first time (see below on firkin), live music, and Scottish Idol over by the Ale Garden we get it started early. The night begins around 6pm and continues until close with the famous Flaming Saltaire!
Following on Saturday and Sunday the events begin. Early morning revel in the dancers footwork and poise. Feast on Scottish delights (and more recognizable food too) in our Food Vendors then take a stroll through our Merchandise Vendors and find that special something to take home. Be sure to catch the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and the ever popular Massing of the Bands on the Great Field. Just before the Closing Ceremonies watch the athletes turn the impressive Caber.
