The Highland Gathering is a Celtic Festival that will take place Saturday, July 20 & Sunday, July 21, 2024 in Sherwood Park in Broadmoor Lake Park and on the Salisbury High School 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 events with shot put, caber toss and more!

The Gathering is a sanctioned event with top class competitions in piping, drumming, dancing and heavy events. To make this an exciting family experience – there are food trucks, community info booths, a Kid Zone and vendors offering jewellery, art works, artisan live demonstrations with a multitude of Scottish and Canadian products.

Sit in the shade of the Sherlock Holmes Pub Beer gardens or stroll through the grounds. We are also a dog-friendly event!
