Saturday, July 21, 2018 | Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon

For more than 60 years, the Portland Highland Games have delighted participants with a unique, Scottish experience featuring incredible Scottish pipe bands, bag pipers and drummers, dancers and athletes. Come enjoy a full day of this Scottish festival. Explore Scottish clan tents and learn about your Scottish history (you may be surprised to find a little Scottish in ya). Immerse yourself in the music and culture. Watch fun demonstrations (like our popular sheep dogs) and be inspired by powerful athletes competing on the Heavy Athletics field. Become a whisky connoisseur in our whisky tasting tent. Shop for regional Scottish products and gifts, and enjoy tasty food (and yup Рthere is beer).

Thank you to our 2017 Sponsors!
