Dunedin Highland Games & Festival

There's a lot of Scottish pride in Dunedin—not a great surprise considering the city was settled by Scottish families in 1899. To celebrate that bonny heritage, the Dunedin Scottish Arts Foundation has been organizing a town-wide fête for the last half century. Every year, more than 40 clans and societies gather together to celebrate their heritage at the Highland Games & Festival, a collection of culture, athleticism, and culinary delights. Read on for a taste of the festivities:

  • The Games: Tug of war anchors a day of caber tossing (where athletes hurl poles), stone putting (where athletes throw heavy rocks), and hammer throwing (where they throw a weight attached to a stick).
  • The Music: Featured bands Off Kilter, Seven Nations, MacGilliossa, and Celtic Conundrum; Scottish drumming; Pipers compete in individual and band competitions.
  • The Food: Over 20 craft beers, cider, and wine wash down a collection of classic Scottish fare.
  • The Culture: This major contest of bagpipes, Scottish drumming, heavy athletics, and Highland dancing is accompanied by a 5k run, kids games, and over 20 Celtic vendors selling anything from celtic jewelry and music to bagpipes and kilts.
