About the Saskatchewan Highland Gathering & Celtic Festival

Céad míle fáilte! (Scottish Gaelic - A Hundred Thousand Welcomes)

The Saskatchewan Highland Gathering & Celtic Festival incorporates older Highland Games events in Regina and Moose Jaw that have been running since the early 20th century! We promote all things Scottish and Celtic and provide an excellent opportunity for members of the local and neighbouring communities to get involved and showcase their talents and promote their wares. Pipers, drummers, dancers, heavy events athletes, and enthusiasts from all over Western Canada come to southern Saskatchewan each year on the May long weekend to participate in this exciting line-up of events.

This year, we have partnered with the Regina Hotels Association and other sponsors to make the weekend bigger and more spectacular than ever, with more events, more for everyone to do, and more great reasons to stay in Regina while taking in the weekend events!

In true Scottish hospitality, the Gathering provides a friendly environment for members of the public to come and watch the various events taking place including the piping and drumming, highland dancing, heavy events, and the very popular festival tent. After watching your favourite event, take a stroll through our vendors market and pick-up something uniquely Scottish like a clan badge, sporran, sgian dubh (skeen doo - black dagger) or even a kilt! Food and refreshments are available all weekend and we have some very special events in both Regina and Moose Jaw.

Bring the whole family, even your crowd-friendly pet. On a sunny day, nothing beats relaxing in a lawn chair or lying on a blanket, listening to the sounds of Scotland!
