On Saturday, August 1, 2020, Chicago Scots hosted the 34th Annual Scottish Festival and Highland Games! Due to COVID-19, the event was held virtually this year for the first time ever. This year’s Games were a one-of-a-kind experience and were free to all to attend.

This year’s Games featured a little bit of everything that you love — from pipe bands to Highland dancing to heavy athletics, we brought the fun and traditions to you—wherever you are!

So put your kilt on, pour yourself some whisky, and get ready to experience the first Virtual Event in our (almost) 175 year history!

If you’ve never been to the Scottish Festival and Highland Games, this is a great way to learn about Scottish Culture and sample the festival virtually.
