Blairsville Scottish Festival & Highland Games

A Union County tradition since 2004

The Blairsville Scottish Festival & Highland Games is an annual event held at Meeks Park each June.  This year's event promises to be the best yet.  Taking place the weekend of June 8th & 9th, this two day event features a parade of colors, demonstrations, crafts unique to the Scottish people and of course, games.  

On Friday, June 7th, Downtown Blairsville will be host to the kick-off party, or in Scottish parlance, a cèilidh, a traditional Scottish social gathering. Taking place on our historic town square, the cèilidh will begin at 6pm with a VIP tent for participating clans, a 7pm - 8pm concert in the Old Courthouse with a performance by Appalachian Pipes & Drums, and for the finale, an 7:30pm outdoor concert on the Square featuring Steven Phillips & the Midnight Express!
