The Highland Gathering is a Celtic Festival that will take place Friday, July 22 to Sunday, July 24, 2022 in Sherwood Park in Broadmoor Park and on the Salisbury High athletic fields. It is an amazing and entertaining mix of Scottish pipes, drums and massed bands. Add to that Highland, Scottish and Irish dancing – and top it all off with flying kilts at the heavy games with shot put, caber toss and more! The Gathering is a sanctioned event with top class competition in pipe bands, dancing and the heavy games. To make this an exciting family experience - there are food trucks, community info booths, a Kid Zone and vendors offering jewelry, art works, artisan live demonstrations with a multitude of Scottish and Canadian products.
