The 55th Annual Colorado Scottish Festival Comes to Edgewater in 2018!

The St Andrew Society of Colorado announces a Highland leap forward with the move of our annual Colorado Scottish Festival back to the Denver Metro area in the City of Edgewater.

Our long tradition of celebrating all things Scottish will bring the added convenience of being right in your own backyard. Edgewater’s Citizens Park will be a fitting venue for our 55thannual Games!

We want to make everyone who attends feel like they have stepped into Scotland for a day. Expect all the classic elements of a world class Scottish Festival and Highland Games: the crowd-pleasing Scottish heavy athletics caber tossing (the ‘telephone pole’ event), the swirling kilts and leaps of Scottish Highland dancers, Scottish country dancing, the stirring spectacle and haunting tunes of pipe bands from around the state, whisky tastings, Clan Village, Colorado’s own Renaissance Scots, living history, Scottish food, British Dogs, British Cars, Parade of Clans and so much more!

Our mission of sharing traditional Scottish culture and innovative Highland Games remains our passion. We couldn’t be prouder to continue our popular and unique event with our Edgewater neighbors. No doubt they are Scottish at heart!

Anyone interested in getting involved as a sponsor or volunteer should contact info@scottishgames.org

For more information, please visit www.scottishgames.org , follow us on Facebook at ColoradoScottishFestival and Twitter at @ColoradoNessie.

Chieftain, Timm Herrod, along with the members of the Games Committee and St Andrew Society of Colorado are committed, as always, to making the 2018 event an unforgettable weekend.

We look forward to seeing you in Edgewater at Citizens Park on August 4, and 5, 2018!
