The Highland games is an age-old Scottish tradition and competition for the heartiest of the Celtic heritage. The Highland Games of Harpers Ferry again welcomes all who wish to experience this wonderful culture's liveliness.


Because of the success of the inaugural Highland Games of Harpers Ferry festival, 2021 welcome all to our new one hundred and thirty acre venue at Sam Michaels Park in Jefferson County West Virginia.

The Highland Games of Harpers Ferry include these traditional competitions:


Open/Braemar Stones

Weight For Height

From the tossing of a caber end over end, throwing stones and hammers for distance, or just enjoying great food and grog, there’s something for everyone. This outdoor event will have vendors, live music, food, a beer garden and bar, traditional dancing, a playground for the kids, a dog park, FREE parking, and more. We cordially invite you, your entire family, and all of your friends to participate in this year’s colorful event because without you, there are no games at all.
