50th Stone Mountain Highland Games and Scottish Festival

October 14 - 16, 2022

 

For 49 years, Scotland has been coming to Georgia with the Stone Mountain Highland Games and Scottish Festival! For our 50th Anniversary, Brigadoon returns with Friday events being held at the Hilton Northeast Atlanta Host hotel on October 14, 2022. On Saturday and Sunday, we will be transforming the meadows and meandering tree-lined paths of Stone Mountain Park for the weekend of October 15 and 16 2022 into the impressive mix of sights and sounds of a Scottish Highland Games presented in a uniquely southern style.

One of the premier Scottish festival in the US, Stone Mountain will be featuring colorful pipe bands, Scottish Athletics, Piping and Drumming competitions, Highland dancers competing before judges of worldwide renown, Country Dancing, Scottish Harping and Fiddling. Scottish foods and drink, clan tents and vendors selling lovely goods imported from the British Isles, and Celtic performers are also a part of this traditional gathering. Join us for a fun and educational weekend trip to the Highlands!

Don your tartans if you have them and come join us. No tartan? That's OK too! EVERYONE can be Scottish for this special weekend celebration. Check back often for event updates!

Harping Events -Canceled for 2022.

It is with regret that we announce the cancellation of the Harping events for this year. After losing our dear Harping Chair Kathleen Bingaman early this year, we have been searching for someone to step up to coordinate all of the tent activities. Unfortunately, this individual has not appeared. With less than 60 days to our event and far too many unknowns in this space, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year. Better to pause than to provide a disorganized and less than perfect experience.

We continue to hope that an individual in the Harping community will come forth and volunteer to coordinate this area in 2023 so that a harping experience that we have come to expect can return.

Apologies to our competitors and the harping community in general.
