Greetings, from the board of Directors of the Southeast Alabama Highland Games! We hope this message finds you in good health.

If you’ve been following current events, the COVID19 or Coronavirus pandemic has forced the suspension of several indoor and outdoor events. The NBA, NHL, NCAA (Both Men’s and Women’s tournaments) are all suspending their seasons, and other organizations are re-thinking their events in light of what’s going on.  These events have been postponed with the safety of the athletes, the fans and those who have to work at those events in mind.

We here at the Southeast Alabama Highland Games share that sentiment. The Athletes, the Clans, the Vendors, and the Public are what make our event. Without you, the magic of our event, and the energy that fills the air on that day would be gone.

With that in mind we are temporarily suspending our event, and working to reschedule with a fall date in mind. Over the next few weeks, we will be reviewing options for the next best date for our event. We will be making that announcement across all of our social media platforms.We would like to thank everyone for their understanding and their patience, and we look forward to seeing you later this year!


On March 19, 2016 the Twisted Kilt Society hosted the first annual Southeast Alabama Highland Games and Scottish Heritage Festival. It was an event to behold, with over 1,000 in attendance. 2017 grew even more!

On March 21, 2020 we’ll be bring it back for our 5th year!

This is a family fun event. We encourage everyone to come out if only to see the games and watch the demonstrations that will be going on.


We will feature all the traditional Highland Games events, including the caber toss, sheaf toss, hammer throw, and more.


A large collection of food and merchandise vendors to look through as you watch the athletics.


Besides the athletics, the clans are the 2nd most important piece of the event. Come talk to clan representatives and learn some history.


Kids Athletics

Let the young lads and lasses give it a try. We will have a staged down version of the competition to let the younglings try it out for themselves.

Meet & Greet the Clans

Not sure if you have Scottish heritage? Come by the clan’s tents, meet with them, and see what clan you may be a part of.

Scotty Dog's Kids Kingdom

We will have activities and story times for the kids to enjoy in addition to the kids athletics.
