Host to the largest Scottish gathering, the Highland Festival

The Alma Highland Festival and Games began in 1968. The festival is located on the Alma College campus in Alma, Michigan. Each year the festival brings visitors the very best of Scottish tradition. The festival combines great competition with Scottish hospitality.

We try to bring it all to you. The festival includes piping drumming and band competitions along with traditional Scottish dancing and fiddling. If you want to find our more about Scottish tradition, visit our clan tents.

How about watching nearly 1,000 pipers and drummers playing at once in a mass band. If you want to really experience the festival, stick around and take part in our Ceilidh (party) on Saturday night. There is much, much more. But don't just take our word for it. Stop by and see for yourself.
