Held at the historic North Carolina Rural Heritage Center, this is just the kind of event you would expect to find in the county that has one of the largest concentrations of Highland Scots in North America. If you’ve never experienced a Highland Games, you owe it to yourself to come out to this event. Watch lads compete in traditional events, such as tossing the caber (a massive tapered pine pole) and the sheaf toss (throwing a 20-pound bale of straw straight up using a pitchfork)! Of course, what would the games be without the piping and drumming, dancing, and Tartan glory associated with this unique culture. Beer and food vendors will be on site. Please see event website for more information and to purchase tickets for the event.
