Clans, Vendors and Food

What's a Highland Gathering without a wee bit of shopping, exploring Scottish Heritage and sampling Scottish food. Each year has something a bit different but always something that will please.

Heavy Events

Heavy Events

Originally Highland Gatherings or Games were all about athletics. Dancing, piping and drumming, food, etc. were all just entertainment but athletics were the main reason Scotsmen gathered. Heavy Events are the remaining truly athletic activity at any modern Highland Gathering.

Registration is now open for the Edmonton Scottish Society Highland Festival for 2021. Link on top of page.
