Highland Games and Celtic Music Festival returns to Harrison County

A popular event is making a return after a two-year pandemic related hiatus.

The Highland Games and Celtic Music Festival is this weekend at the Harrison County Fairgrounds. The event will be held at 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

Athletic events, storytelling, animal events and demonstrations, as well as live music on two stages from local and visiting performers are scheduled.

You can expect to see clan tartans being worn and there will be folks there to help you get started on tracing your ancestry if you have any Celtic blood.

Several Scottish beers will also be available to those interested. Event organizers say it will be two days of fun. Eyler Coates said, “We’re going to have two days and two stages of bands that come from all over the country. We’re going to have two days of Highland athletics and lots of things for different people.”

Terry Campbell said, “We’ll have authentic Scottish Beer, that’s Guinness.”

Admission to the event is $10 each day, $8 for seniors and military, and free for children 12 and under. Weekend passes are also available.
