The ancient Celtic spirit beckons throughout North Carolina’s wide central regions. Thousands of kilted Scots once again make their way to Oxford for their yearly gathering and games, answering the call as hundreds of tartan banners unfurl and piper sounds resound through the acres. Oxford, North Carolina, the site of America’s most inclusive Highland Games, is the only location in North Carolina that most closely resembles the Scottish Highlands.
Thank you for joining us in honoring the history of our Scottish lineage and for supporting the clan competitions in Oxford. You and your family can enjoy Scottish music, dancing, delicacies, costumes, field activities, and much more during the course of the event; all within the comfort of the Carolinas. You can also browse the tents of sellers selling tartans and kilts. Even if you aren’t Scottish, you will crave for the motherland after this weekend of family fun and excitement. If you and your family or friends decide to particpate or watch, you will be met with Ceud mile failte (100,00 welcomes).
Our first year hosting the Highland Games, the Central Carolina Highland Games raised OVER $10,000 for the Central Children’s Home of North Carolina. This year, we are looking to dominate that number with a new donation goal of $25,000.
We have plenty of food vendors who will be offering authentic Scottish meals to the Highland Games spectators and athletes.
Come spectate and support the foundation of many modern sports by immersing yourself in the Highland Games!
Any and all donations are highly appreciated and will be sent directly to the Central Children’s Home of North Carolina – thank you for your contribution in advance!
