About Us

2017 will be the 25th year for this Festival, which had its start in Kiowa for 13 years.  Originally the Kiowa Highland Games and Encampment, since the sponsoring organization was a living history group portraying a Civil War regiment of Scots and Irish from New York, The 79th Highlanders.
 
The Festival moved the seven miles from Kiowa to Elizabeth in 2006,
relocating the event at beautiful Casey Jones Park,
in the pine forest on the east edge of town.
 
Features of the Festival include Dogs of the British Isles, Living History Groups, a wonderful Children's Glen, Scottish and Irish Clans and organizations, along with local Celtic music and dance, Merchants of all sorts, local Artisans and Crafter's, authentic Scottish and Irish food vendors, our very own local Ice Cream maker, a Bonny Knees Contest, Rugby, Scottish Heavy Athletics, Highland Dance competitions, Solo Piping competitions and much, much more.
