Kalamazoo Scottish Festival Association
With events for both men and women, the Highland Games have their roots in ancient times when men came together in informal competitions of strength to keep in shape for clan warfare and defense. The Highland Games influenced today's Olympic Track & Field events, and are an exciting part of many Scottish gatherings around the world! Learn More

We Need You!
The wee bairns are invited to the Children's Field for special games and activities all day long! Come try our smaller versions of the caber toss and the haggis toss, hit the castle with a catapult, decorate a targe, have your face painted, make a fairy crown, and more!
Clan tents are an opportunity to mix and mingle, greet and hang out with those who share a common ancestry, or to explore your ancestry.
