Friday, July 19th - Join us for the "Pre-Games!"
We are so excited about the Games that we decided to start it early, Friday 4 - 9 p.m., on the Main Field at Mt. Hood Community College to kick-off the 61st Portland Highland Games. There will be lots of fun athletic events, the band Saturated Phats will be entertaining you and there will be plenty of food and drink.
If you prefer a more serene evening join us for the Professional Piobaireachd Piping Competition at the College Theater, 7 -10 p.m., and listen to some of the world's top pipers play the traditional music of the Highland pipes.
Saturday, July 20th - New this year:
A special area designated for Young Highlanders and their families (on the Upper Field). Welcome all wee lads and lassies!  
  • A bouncy Scottish castle.
  • The ever-popular Childrens' Games.
  • Portland Metro Youth Pipe Band will teach how to play the chanter and drums.
  • 2nd Annual Kids' Fun Run (on the Main Field).
Please help us spread the word - there is a baby changing/nursery room available all day in the Gym. View a map of the Games.

Hope to see you at the Games both Friday and Saturday!
