The Sacramento Valley Scottish Games and Festival

Please reserve the weekend of April 26-27, 2014 to join us for one of the oldest (and most fun) festivals in California!

Non-stop entertainment includes the Wicked Tinkers, Molly’s Revenge, Men of Worth, Culann's Hounds, Scottish fiddlers, Celtic harps, and (of course) top-notch bagpipe and drum bands.

The Sacramento Valley Scottish Games and Festival is the third-oldest Highland Games in the U.S. and the second-largest in the western states, and this will be our 138th festival. The Sacramento event is known as "the friendly games," with a family atmosphere where everyone is welcome. It draws drum majors, musicians, dancers and athletes from around the world, including well-known competitors and performers from Scotland and Ireland. The Sacramento Games are open to all who regularly compete in heavy athletic events (the caber toss, hammer throw, etc.). British food, Celtic art and merchandise, sheepdog trials, the Hennigan Spinning Frisbee K9s, and other animals typical of the Scottish Highlands round out the variety of fun.
