Our 2021 Highland Games schedule is now set for the summer and fall Games! We are excited to announce that we will be hosting N/N tents at five different Highland Games this year, beginning in August, and running through November. We'll be in MI, WI, TX, GA, and SC, ending the season in North Charleston, SC with our AGM!

See the Mid-West Region section for the three games Joanna Nesbitt will be hosting in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Texas this year!!

Switching back to the southeast now, we will be the Stone Mountain Highland Games in Stone Mtn., GA the 3rd weekend of October on Saturday & Sunday the 16th & 17th. Check their website at www.smhg.org.

In the midwestern states, our new Midwestern Regional Representative, Joanna Nesbitt, begins her hosting schedule at the St. Andrews Society of Detroit Annual Highland Games on Friday & Sat. August 6th and 7th. The games are held in Greenmead Historical Park, 20501 Newburgh Rd., (at 8 Mile Road), Livonia, MI, and this is their incredible 172nd annual games! The Nesbitt family of St. Clair Shores, MI has been donating the Nesbitt Cup Award for Best Clan Tent every year in honor of their father and grandfather. So come see Joanna to see who wins the Nesbitt Cup this year! Check out the schedule at https://highlandgames.com.

Joanna plans to host a tent at two more Games this year in her region: in September she will be in Wisconsin at the Wisconsin Highland Games in Waukesha, WI Sept. 3rd – 5th. These Friday through Sunday Games will be held at the Waukesha Expo Center at 1000 Northview Road (Highway FT), in Waukesha. Joanna's ancestors settled in Wisconsin, so she is excited to be in that area and possibly learn more about her family and where they lived. For details and entry tickets go to https://www.wisconsinscottish.org.

The last Games on her schedule will be in Texas in the town of Salado the 2nd weekend in November.
