Attend the 19th annual Skagit Valley Highland Games & Celtic Festival

It's a “Scottish three-ring circus" and it's coming up Saturday and Sunday, July 13-14 at Edgewater Park in Mount Vernon.

Plan to attend the 19th annual Skagit Valley Highland Games & Celtic Festival and see high-quality performers compete in solo bagpiping and drumming competitions, bagpipe bands, fiddling, traditional Scottish athletics (the “heavy” events) and Scottish Highland dancing.

The Skagit Valley Highland Games is part of an annual circuit of Scottish competitions held in the Pacific Northwest and Lower Mainland of British Columbia, so the talent level is amazing.

There's much more: sheepdog trials, Scottish country dancing, Celtic history and cultural displays — and Scottish food and whisky.

Tickets for a one-day pass are $13 for adults, and there is a four-person family pass for $30. Make a weekend of it and get a two-day pass. There's plenty to do and see around the Skagit Valley after you've had your Highland fling.
