NH Highland Games & Festival

The New Hampshire Highland Games & Festival (NHHG&F) is one of the largest and most diverse Highland Games held in North America and the largest cultural event. This celebration of Scottish heritage is held the third Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of September each year at Loon Mountain Resort in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

While we are known for our traditional Highland Games, we are also an amazing festival! There are many family friendly activities and events throughout the weekend. Visit one of the 65+ clans in clan village, experience Scotland’s history, run the kilted mile race, take in a seminar, engage the youngsters in the youth program, or participate in a whisky tasting or other ticketed events.

42nd New Hampshire Highland Games & Festival

Discover Scotland – no passport required.

The rich culture, traditions, and history of Scotland are on full display at the 42nd New Hampshire Highland Games & Festival at the scenic Loon Mountain Resort, in Lincoln, NH. You don’t have to be Scottish to enjoy the pageantry and excitement of piping & drumming, pipe band, Highland dancing, fiddle, harp, sheep dog, and heavy Scottish athletic competitions. Scotland’s cultural history comes to life in living history encampments. Explore the clan village and admire the tartans and crafts. Scottish and Celtic performers will be playing traditional and modern music, ranging from traditional ballads to tribal beats and bagpipe rock. Children can participate in the Festival Youth Program, which features games (including children’s caber tossing), crafts,  storytelling, and more.

Admission: $20 to $35. Free for children 12 and under.
