Population(s) Served

Scottish heavy athletics owe their roots to the Highland warriors who would keep in shape between battles by competing amongst themselves with everyday implements. A stone, a blacksmith’s hammer, a tree trunk (caber) became tools for building strength for battle. The Heavy Athletics event at Greenmead draws top professional athletes from all over the country including National and World champions. There is also an Amateur athletics class if you want to give it a try.

Population(s) Served

The skirl of the Pipes, the cheers of encouragement for the Athletic events, and the swirling of the Highland Dancers reminds all Scots of our rich and glorious heritage. The Texas Scottish Festival runs 3 live stages of continuous celtic music.
