The Skagit Valley Highland Games & Celtic Festival is an annual event at Edgewater Park in Mount Vernon, WA. Held the second full weekend each July, this Festival attracts over 10,000 people each year. We think of it as a kind of “Scottish 3-ring circus;’ with a wide range of activities for young and old alike.
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. As such, the quality of performers in solo bagpiping and drumming competitions, bagpipe bands, fiddling, traditional Scottish athletics (the “heavy” events) and Scottish Highland dancing is at an extremely high level.
