The Highland Games and Celtic Festival is getting ready for the fourth annual gathering at Andrew Jackson's Hermitage in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday September 8, 2018 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. There will be plenty of music, dancing, exhibitions, games, competitions, as well as food & craft vendors. Plus this year we will kick off the festival with an evening concert on Friday September 7, 2018 from 5:00 PM – 9:30 PM, also at The Hermitage.
Bring a chair or blanket to better enjoy the festivities. Golf carts will be available from the parking to the field to assist handicapped individuals. Dogs kept on a leash are welcome.
The Celtic people are recognized for bravery and dedication to the ideal of freedom. The same can be said of our US military. So as a not-for-profit entity The Middle Tennessee Highland Games wants to recognize and support this "warrior" connection. The MTHG board has been blessed to have made a personal connection with the Chris Fields, executive director of OPERATION RESTORED WARRIOR. This organization is a not-for-profit that does wonderful work helping soldiers returning from combat to re-enter life at home and to deal with PTSD and the stress of combat. It is our desire to donate some of the profits of the returning Middle Tennessee Highland Games and Celtic Festival to this organization. We also hope to have military personnel from OPERATION RESTORED WARRIOR on site at the event and to provide them a well deserved day of fun.
The Scottish Declaration of Arbroath, written in 1320 by the abbot to Pope John XXII states, "For so long as a hundred of us remain alive, we will yield in no least way.... For we fight, not for glory nor for riches nor for honours, but only and alone for freedom, which no good man surrenders but with his life."
