Clan Ross America
 
Highland Games are a way of celebrating Scottish and Celtic culture and heritage. Games events include competitions in Highland dance, pipe & drum and the awesome Heavy Athletics, such as tossing the caber. Other activities include Scottish food, vendors and hosted tent displays by many, many Clans. Contemporary Celtic musical bands perfom as well as classical music and of course, the bag pipers. Some Games feature other events like sheep-herding dog competitions, British car shows and sampling adult beverages. This Games list is organized by regions of the USA - find your area and plan to come out and join us !
THE FOLLOWING IS A PRETTY COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF 2017 GAMES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, MANY GAMES WILL NOT INCLUDE A TENT HOSTED BY CLAN ROSS, BECAUSE MORE VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED. THE GAMES WHERE CRA PLANS TO HAVE A HOSTED TENT ARE PRECEEDED BY AN " * ". Please note that information is subject to change, So check the web site for the particular games you are interested in for any updates.
Compiled by Elizabeth Cooper, CRA Newsletter Editor in 2014; Udated for the 2015 and 2016 Games by the Webmaster, and updated for 2017 by our Northern California tent host Julie Wade - Hurray for volunteers.
