The Wisconsin Highland Games

Waukesha Expo Center
New Year's Eve Hogmanay Celebration!
Wisconsin's largest Highland Games kick off Friday night of Labor Day weekend for a celebration of all things Scottish, Irish and Celtic. Come hear the mighty roar of the bagpipes, see the kilted athletes perform their feats of strength, watch the spinning, leaping Highland dancers, shoot the longbow, toss the battle axe, and grab a pint or a wee dram at St. Andrew's Pub to the sound of the music of the British Isles.
For information on all the many areas of the Wisconsin Highland Games, please Take a Tour!
A weekend of Celtic fun for the whole family
There truly is something for everyone at the Wisconsin Highland Games, and as we always like to say, "You don't have to be Scottish!" Whether you're a wee bairn or an auld foggie, and whether your tastes are tea and scones or haggis and ale, we'll keep you busy with hands-on activities, demonstrations, performances, and competitions—all for one very affordable admission fee. And kids 12 and under get in free!
