The Wisconsin Highland Games

Friday night, Aug. 29 - Sunday, Aug 31, 2014
Waukesha Expo Center
Waukesha, Wisconsin

Wisconsin's largest Highland Games kick off Friday night of Labor Day weekend for a celebration of all things Scottish, Irish and Celtic. Come hear the mighty roar of the bagpipes, see the kilted athletes perform their feats of strength, watch the spinning, leaping Highland dancers, shoot the longbow, toss the battle axe, and grab a pint or a wee dram at St. Andrew's Pub to the sound of the music of the British Isles.

For information on all the many areas of the Wisconsin Highland Games, please Take a Tour!

Friday night:

5-10 pm • Opening Ceremonies + Live Music & Party

The Games:

Saturday 9 am - 10 pm
Sunday 9 am - 9 pm

Events and competitions run Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 5, with the Pub Tent remaining open with live music.
Please note that Friday night is the Opening Ceremonies and Ceilidh (party) only.

A weekend of Celtic fun for the whole family

Whether you're a wee bairn or an auld foggie, and whether your tastes are tea and scones or haggis and ale, we'll keep you busy with hands-on activities, demonstrations, performances, and competitions—all for one very affordable admission fee. And kids 12 and under get in free!
