2020 WISCONSIN HIGHLAND GAMES CANCELLED
Taking into account the guidance from the Waukesha County Health Department as it’s related to large gatherings and social distancing, the difficult decision was made to cancel the 2020 Games due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board took into account the health and safety of the community and the games participants, anticipated diminished attendance by participants and volunteers, the difficulty to social distance and the challenge in keeping things sanitized in such an interactive environment. The Board determined that this was the best decision under the circumstances.
WI Scottish President Ron Coutts said “We are very grateful for all of the work and support that our many volunteers and sponsors have put into planning for the 2020 games. We are going to bring the games back bigger and better in 2021 as we celebrate our 19th Highland Games.”
Wisconsin SCOTTISH Inc., is a non-profit, tax-exempt Wisconsin Corporation. We were chartered to preserve the traditions, culture and heritage, as well as the arts and crafts of the British Isles. We accomplish this goal through educational and community activities such as the annual Wisconsin Highland Games.
The Highland Games and our other events provide a forum for traditional artisans and athletes, professional and amateur alike, to inform, educate, entertain and compete. These activities help to create an environment where their arts and abilities may be appreciated by a great number of people.
The fun and friendship doesn't stop with the Highland Games! During the year you will find us participating in various community events. Some of these include the St. Patrick's Day parade, Candy Cane Lane, Cancer Walks, Hockey Games, and Brewer Games. Also, we have our membership meetings, pub crawls, and our annual Holiday Party which offers another chance to socialize. Become a member today!
