Traveling from as far away as Japan and Sweden, athletes loft up to 22-foot-long trimmed trees during the caber toss—one of the Scotland’s most unusual but crowd-pleasing traditions—or hurl rocks weighing up to 28 pounds during the stone put. Meanwhile, multiple performance stages showcase a lineup of diverse entertainers, including a mix of Celtic rock and fire juggling from Celtica, melodic folk from Abby Green, and traditional bagpipe music from San Antonio Pipes and Drums. Meanwhile, living-history exhibits educate visitors with live reenactments of Viking battles and demonstrations of life in the British Isles during the Iron Age, before humans learned how to forge steel into computers.

San Antonio Highland Games Association and Celtic Music Festival

The San Antonio Highland Games Association's annual Celtic culture and athletics festival traditionally draws thousands of real and would-be Scots for an action- and bagpipe-packed weekend each year. Male and female athletes grown bored with sports that don't involve lead hammers or young trees have traveled from as far away as Japan and Sweden to test their mettle in the athletic field’s traditional Scottish strength competitions. The association's founders trace their lineage to numerous Scottish clans, and encourage others to explore their Celtic genealogy with festival workshops.

Even when the weather is bad there is fun to be had at the games. Lots of vendors and food and the music was awesome as usual this year.
