Grandfather Mountain Highland Games | Clan MacFarlane Hospitality Tent | Linville, North Carolina, USA

July 6 - July 9

Join Us For An Event Fifty Years In The Making

In 1973, our Society was reformed after years of fall-off as the result of World Wars and economic depression.  It was at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games of that year, that the International Clan MacFarlane Society was reformed by 50 founding members. 50 years later, our numbers have grown to include members from not just the homelands of Scotland but throughout the global MacFarlane diaspora.

Our annual hospitality tent will be hosted by Commissioners to North Carolina, Debbie and Neil Webb.

50th Annual World Gathering & General Meeting

During the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, we will be holding our Annual World Gathering & General Meeting. MacFarlane’s from all over the world will be in attendance.

About The Grandfather Mountain Highland Games

High in the Mountains of Western North Carolina the ancient Celtic spirit beckons. Answering the call, as hundreds of tartan banners unfurl, are the sounds of bagpipes echoing through the valley, and once again, thousands of kilt-clad Scots make their way to MacRae Meadows for their annual gathering and games. Nowhere in the New World is there a place more reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands than the home of America’s grandest Highland Games—Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina.

Ceud mile failte to you and your family as you join us in celebrating the history of our Scottish ancestry and cheer as you watch the clans compete on MacRae Meadows. Throughout the four day weekend you and your family will sample Scottish music, dancing, foods, costumes, field games and much more, and you can shop for tartans and kilts in the vendors’ tents. A weekend so full of family fun and excitement that you’ll be longing for the mother country (even if you aren’t Scottish).
