Utah Scottish Festival & Highland Games
Fri, Jun 07
The Utah Scottish Festival & Highland Games has been bringing its guests a broad cross section of the musical, culinary and historical culture of Scotland for 45 years. We have a highly skilled and proficient all-volunteer board of directors and festival committee that spends hundreds of hours each bringing it to fruition. The festival is always held on the 2nd weekend in June and this year's festival will be held at the Utah State Fair Park on the 7th, 8th and 9th of June.Like all the best Scottish festivals, we host full pipe band and solo competitions including a championship drum major competition. We also host a full Highland dance competition featuring champion dancers. For sports enthusiasts, we offer three full days of traditional heavy athletics competitions. Our festival is home to several world and national records and our strong-man competition is a hugely popular event.There are many sights and sounds to enjoy including live performances by Celtic groups such as the Men of Worth and the Wicked Tinkers as well as local acts throughout the festival. We have several local dance groups that perform including both Scottish and Irish traditional dance. Particularly popular is the array of traditional Scottish food that is sure to please a wide audience.
