Gates open at 8:30am. Events are over by 4pm and the Awards Ceremony is at 5pm. Then, stick around for the greatest Scottish Happy Hour in the world at 5:30pm – celtic music, pipe bands and beer in the Entertainment Tent!
The Scots are not known for their cooking. They are, however, widely acknowledged as being fierce competitors and will make virtually anything into a contest of strength, agility, and guile.
Pipers, Drummers and Athletes will be throwing, tossing and playing everywhere! We will have to restrain you if you have an urge to run out onto the Athletics Field to toss a caber; however, the axe-throwing competition is open to everyone. Watch the finest competitors rise to the challenge.
Great Scot! Parade
Friday, May 25th at 6pm on Main Street
We’ll be marching north on Main Street in downtown Greenville from Broad Street to East North Street. More, more, more. That’s been our motto for our Parades, and we sure have more more more for you in 2018. There will be more pipe bands, marching clans, Scottish Chiefs, and a multitude of Scottish-themed entries. Floats, Scottish Woods Faeries, Braveheart, Axe-throwers, Longbow Archers, Scottish military re-enactors, more more more.
Our Joint Military Salute is bringing in stunning additions to our Parade. Look for lots of stars — the kind you see on the shoulders of the finest military officers in the US and Scotland. We will have 8 Royal Highland Fusiliers serving as the Honor Guard of the games. Greenville will never have seen a Parade like this. Bring your family and check it out.
