Springfield Highland Games and Celtic Festival

760 ​South Main Street
Chatham, IL 62629

Highland Games are a unique mix of sports, culture and community. They usually comprise a programme of field and track events, piping and Highland dancing competitions and 'heavy events' like the tug-o-war, the hammer throw and tossing the caber. It is said the Highland Games originate from Ireland in 2000 BC and that they crossed the water to Scotland with the fourth and fifth century migrations of the Scotti into Dalriada (Argyll) and beyond.
