Who We Are

Middle Tennessee Highland Games is a non-profit, non-stock corporation, licensed under the laws of Tennessee. We were created in July of 2014 with the primary purpose of bringing the Middle Tennessee Highland Games and Celtic Festival back to the middle Tennessee area. Our key designated charity is Operation Restored Warrior out of Clarksville, Tennessee. 

Our Mission

The Middle Tennessee Games is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, social, and athletic purposes. We promote and provide opportunities for educating the general public by sponsoring a forum where people come together to learn, appreciate, and preserve Scottish and other Celtic cultures.

Our Vision

We have started out as a small group but we are growing fast as we gain excited partners from the City of Nashville and Davidson County Tennessee. We welcome all volunteers with a desire to be a part of the games and festival. We also are looking for corporate and individual sponsors that want to participate in the creation of a signature event for Nashville and surrounding areas. We want to be that fun event that families look forward to every year.

Our Values

  • We will be inclusive of all cultures as we celebrate Celtic traditions.

  • We will create a tradition of excellence through activities that demonstrate that we care for the environment around us and for the people who attend our events.

  • We will maintain a strong and frugal financial policy in order to achieve our cultural and charitable goals.

  • We will never compromise our integrity. Our decisions and actions will show all that

Our Plans

The fifth annual Highland Games are currently planned for September 7-8, 2019 in Percy Warner Park in Nashville, TN.

Articles of Incorporation, Declaration of Trust, and Bylaws are available upon email request. Our tax ID number is 47-1505659
