Stone Mountain Highland Games welcomes the John Mohr MacKintosh Pipes & Drums as our 2017 Host Band. John Mohr MacKintosh Pipes & Drums (JMMPD) is a performance and Grade V competition pipe band, with a Grade IV pipe band currently under development. The band has performed throughout the Southeastern United States for well over a third of a century since it was founded in 1977. The band is currently under the musical direction of Pipe Major M.L. Loudermilk.
The Georgia Tartan was first designed and woven in 1982 in honor of Georgia's Semiquincentenary Celebration which coincided with the 10th Annual Stone Mountain Highland Games. “The Georgia tartan is so special because this state’s very history is woven into the fabric. It is a tartan any Georgia Scot and any proud Georgian can wear with pride."
Part of what makes Stone Mountain Highland Games special, are the trophies. Winning a trophy shows the achievement of the competitor's hard work and dedication to their heritage. In addition, it serves as a reminder of that special win that they have for a lifetime. Thank you to everyone listed on our trophy page who sponsored a trophy for this year’s Games!
