NOTE: Most of the information on this page currently reflects 2018 events and information. As it becomes available, updates will be made for the 2019 festival!
Memorial Day Weekend 2019: Mark your calendars for The Great Scot! Parade to be held on Friday evening, May 24th, at 6 pm on Main Street in downtown Greenville. The following day, Saturday, May 25th, venture to the Furman University campus for the Greenville Scottish Games.
This is a B.Y.0.B. event—as in, bring your own bagpipes—to one of the world's premier Games events. Enjoy two days of Scottish festivities that combine spirited competition, Celtic jams, a parade, and more! Scots are 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!
If you don't come, you'll never be able to ask the age-old question, 'What does a Scotsman really wear under his kilt?' (Spoiler Alert: It's shoes!)
May 24 & 25
Downtown Greenville & Furman University
Games: $7-$16 in advance; $10-$20 at the gate
