We're Back for 2023

We’re excited to come back on July 15th, 2023 but there are some changes in store for the Portland Highland Games. Coming out of three years of hiatus has proven difficult. And as such, we are unable to hold an athletics competition this year. We know this is a part of The Games that many in the community have come to love and expect. Lacking an athletics competition, there will be NO FRIDAY EVENTS and NO UPPER FIELD. All of the great music, dancing, entertainment, and Scottish fanfare, which you have come to love, will be held in the gymnasium and on the main field only.

Ticket sales will be open momentarily, and we’re excited to see you July 15th.

Portland Highland Games

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 Scottish Cows) and be inspired by powerful athletes competing on the Heavy Athletics field. Shop for regional Scottish products and gifts, and enjoy tasty food (and yup – there is beer).
