Calendar of Highland Games and Scottish Events in North America
This Calendar is based on information supplied by various sources - primarily the associated web sites. It lists Highland Games, festivals, and other Scottish and Celtic events. There are two presentations: by month, and by State/Province.
Quite often, event organizers do not update their web sites more than six months prior to the event. Thus if we list an event as UNCONFIRMED, we have estimated the date to be the same weekend dates for this year, as most events are held on the same weekend each year. Note that it is possible that the location may change for Unconfirmed events. Visit their web site to see if there is more current information.
AS OF FEB 1, 2016 WE ARE LISTING 2016 DATES THROUGH AUGUST. DATES FOR SEPTEMBER THROUGH DECEMBER STILL SHOW THE 2015 DATA, WHICH WE WILL UPDATE BY APRIL 1 WITH THE INFORMATION AVIALABLE. DATES ON THE STATE/PROVINCE PRESENTATION WILL BE UPDATED THEN AS WELL.
Since Highland Games are primarily held outdoors, and are subject to the elements as well as changes from year to year,
please check the event web site to verify the time, date and location before making any travel plans.
These calendar entries are also listed in the Journal of The Clan Campbell Society (North America) l for about 3-4 months forward. Updates and submissions for the Calendar are welcome at any time. However, in order to meet the print deadlines for inclusion in the Journal Games Calendar, please send additions or corrections to the Calendar Coordinator - preferably via email - by the 15th of January, April, July, and October.
Legal Stuff They Want Us To Say
The Clan Campbell Society (NA) offers no guarantee as to the accuracy of information, despite our best efforts. Much of the information on our Games Calendar is received from third parties, therefore we cannot be held responsible for ensuring that the information provided to us is accurate or that it does not infringe the rights of someone else.
Remember that things happen: rain, floods, hurricanes, black knights that let none pass, tornados, lighting storms, date and location changes, castles falling over and sinking into the swamp, and other stuff we haven't thought of yet that may stop an event from going on when and/or where they initially told us. It's not our fault so don't blame us.
The Clan Campbell Society (NA) reserves the right to refuse any submission for posting to the Games Calendar. (You'd be surprised at what we get.) We post just about every event we hear about that's verifiable, and try hard to support the Scottish Community with this Games Calendar. Be a good lad or lassie and send us all the information you can about your event so we can help you get the word out. If you're not sure how much information to send, look at the other listings on the Games Calendar and see what everyone else sent. It's hard to go wrong that way. No one gets any better treatment than any one else. No one pays to be listed on the Clan Campbell Society (NA) Games Calendar, but if you really want to send us money, we'll take it and thank you most kindly; but it won't get you any better treatment.
We also have a "Legal Page" somewhere on this web site that is full of the lawyer written stuff, if you really want to read it. Personally... I'd rather go to one of the Games listed here. See you at the Games!
