The Virginia Scottish Games is a unique annual festival that began as a celebration of Alexandria’s Scottish heritage and continues to celebrate the Scottish heritage of the whole Commonwealth of Virginia. The cornerstone of the event is the Highland Athletic Competition. From the days of the medieval Scottish kings, Highland athletes have gathered to test their strength on the field of honor. The Games will host many of the top-ranked professional athletes in North America to include several who have competed at the recent World Championships.

In addition to athletic competitions, the Virginia Scottish Games includes piping & drumming, highland dancing, and fiddling competitions along with sheep-herding demonstrations, an antique car show, a variety of vendors & crafters, clan and society exhibits, a living history encampment, children’s activities, live entertainment and plenty of Scottish food and drink.
