Hello there,
This Valentine’s weekend, we would love to share Dougal’s Jumper’s latest video with you.
It is the story of a couple of Highland cows on the rocky road to romance.
It would be great if you gave it a look.
All the best,
Dougal

This weekend Should be our Festival and games but due to Covid 19 we can’t legally celebrate our heritage with all 2,000+ of you who join us each year. Please celebrate with us as we post here this weekend. We miss each one of you and are already planning for next year!

During these uncertain times, the health and safety of our clans, athletes, vendors, volunteers and guests is of ultimate importance to the Blairsville Scottish Festival and Highland Games. So it is with a heavy heart we have decided to cancel our 2020 games.

Many thanks for your understanding and looking forward to seeing you at our games June 12th and 13th, 2021.

On Saturday, January 25, 2020, Queen Elizabeth appointed her grandson as the new Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. In the position, William will become the British monarch’s personal representative to the Church of Scotland, carrying out various official visits and ceremonial duties.

William, 37, takes over the role from Richard Scott, the 10th Duke of Buccleuch and 12th Duke of Queensberry. Before Scott, the Princess Royal, Princess Anne held the position.

Blairsville Scottish Festival and Highland Games

For 16 years the Scots have gathered at Meeks Park on Highway 515 in Blairsville, Ga. 30540. Highland dancers, Scottish athletes, family clans, bagpipes and drums and traditional musicians come to celebrate their heritage. Even if you don’t know your family’s heritage or have little or no Scottish ties come experience Scotland without the need of a passport or international flight across the ocean. Admission is $15 per day or $25 for both Saturday and Sunday. Children 12 and under are free. Meeks Park on Highway 515 hosts all the events beginning at 9 am each day. The opening ceremony with the massed bands and parade of tartans will be at 12 noon on Saturday.

Sheep dogs and falcons and birds of prey all come with their handlers. Scottish Athletes, Highland dancers, pipers and drummers all come to experience Scotland here in the highlands of North Georgia. The dogs will herd their sheep on the lower ball field while the falcons take the main field for their demonstrations. The blacksmith/knife smith demonstrations and Clann Nan Con will be in set up in the vendor area.

Wee lads and lassies are encouraged to come to the festival with their family. Special activities for the children include the “passport to the clan” where children visit clan tents and once they learn one fact about the clan they receive a stamp and once their passport is full they receive a prize. There is also face painting and other activities especially for the wee ones.
What is a festival without shopping? Many favorite vendors with traditional Scottish wares, clothing and food are returning plus new merchants who are making their first trek to the Blairsville Scottish Festival. Delicious Scottish food (haggis excluded), jewelry, sporans, kilts, T-shirts, clothing, and many more Scottish items will be available for purchase.
