Go to The Highland Games

The Highland Games

Annually held on the first Saturday of April, the games bring together the rich heritage of Scottish, Irish, and Welsh cultures in a friendly competition. The 52nd Dunedin Highland Games will be held April 7, 2018.

Go to Celtic Music and Craft Beer Festival

Celtic Music and Craft Beer Festival

The annual festival is traditionally held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, and offers a wide variety of Celtic music, dancing, food, crafts, and plenty of craft beer. The November 2017 event was fantastic!
