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.

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.
