Central Florida Scottish Highland Games

Experience traditional highland athletics, dance, art, music, culture, food and a Gaelic spirit that can be felt throughout this multi-acre festival celebrating all things Scotland!


The Central Florida Scottish Highland Games, the largest community event in Seminole County, organized each year by the Scottish-American Society of Central Florida, was created to promote and preserve Scottish heritage.


Taking place on Saturday, Jan 13 - Sunday, Jan.14 2024, the two-day gathering welcomes thousands of visitors to Central Winds Park in Winter Springs.


The festival features competitions in Scottish heavy athletics, Highland dance, bagpiping, and baking. The weekend hosts cultural activities, including Border Collie demonstrations, Scottish clans, musical performances, a medieval camp, ax throwing, and more.


There is also the popular Boulder Boogie event, where contestants vie for bragging rights of carrying the heaviest stone the farthest distance without dropping it. Our festival is a family-friendly event featuring a non-competitive “Kids Games” version of Scottish athletics and other activities. We feature the best Celtic artisans presenting jewelry, clothing, artistry, weaponry, and more.


There is plenty of food and drink: beer, wine, whiskey, fish-n-chips, scotch-egg, and even haggis tacos. The whiskey tasting welcomes attendees to sample expertly curated rare and unique whiskies.


The Ceilidh, features multiple Celtic-rock bands, all included with admission.
