SEASIDE HIGHLAND GAMES

Saturday, October 14, 2017, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


We are excited to bring to you this great Scottish/Celtic Festival:
Come join us on Saturday & Sunday, October 14 & 15.

The Games uphold a Scottish tradition dating back into the mists of the past. The earliest Games were held more than a thousand years ago under the sponsorships of kings and clan chiefs. The Ceres Games in Fife, Scotland, claims to be the oldest continuous games, dating from 1314. However, the Braemar Gathering claims to have older roots, dating back to King Malcolm III of Scotland, who came to the throne in 1057.

And the Friday night preceding is our banquet dinner with entertainment, fashion show and a get-to-know other Scots or Scots-enthusiasts. On Saturday night will be a party where 4 clans will be throwing an AGM - Clans Campbell, Clan Ross, Clan Morrison and Clan MacLaren. It will be one to remember !

Today, Scottish Games are held in all parts of the world where Scots, by birth or ancestry, have made their home. Games are so popular now in the United States, that one or more Games can be attended somewhere in the country almost every week of the year.

The Seaside Highland Games were organized to fill the void of a Scottish presence in California's Central Coast and to round out the year of Scottish Games activities. The SHG is a nonprofit public benefit corporation organized for the educational purposes of sharing Scottish history, art, literature, music and tradition. It is governed by a Board of Directors and is a 501(c)(3) organization.
