in the Highlands of Northwestern Connecticut
Rain or Shine!
A wee bit o' Scotland will be at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville CT
on Sunday, June 25, 2017, from 8am to 5pm.
The Round Hill Highland Games is an annual festival celebrating Scottish heritage and culture,
holding traditional professional and amateur highland game competitions.
It was King Malcolm III (1057-1093) who started the Scottish Highland Games nearly a thousand years ago
when he summoned the clans to Craig Choinich by Braemar near Balmoral.
The fastest man to race up the craig became the king's royal messenger.
The gathering continued year after year in order to sort out the smartest, swiftest, strongest,
most nimble, accurate, agile and coordinated Cumbrians
with the most prowess, endurance, stamina and character from amongst his subjects!
These subjects became the King’s Royal Inner Circle of protectors and couriers when going into battle.
Round Hill Highland Games are the 3rd oldest Games in the United States,
and this year marks our 93rd Highland Games and Scotsfest
where both those of Scottish descent and Scots-at-heart are welcome!
Enjoy traditional piping and drumming competitions, pipe major competitions,
pipe band competitions, Scottish highland and country dancing, heavy athletic competitions,
races and amateur sports for the whole family, children’s stories, games & crafts,
Scottish entertainment and folk music, and fabulous Scottish food & drink and merchandise vendors.
This year's Games are featuring an Amateur Haggis Toss contest, 5k Race, Kilted Mile Race
whisky tasting, maple syrup tasting, haggis tasting,
and a surprise visit by Merida from Disney's Brave.
Camp overnight on Saturday, June 24, at the park and enjoy our ceilidh!
