Games & Festivals

Clan Forbes members may be found at Scottish events throughout the United States and Canada! In many cases local "conveners" host tents at local Scottish Highland Games and Celtic Festivals. Here is a list of games and festivals, with known conveners. Let Clan Forbes International know if your festival or convener is not listed.

This year, 2020, is a sad time for all highland games, most of which have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Please see our “virtual” response to the “calling of the clans” at the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games here.

If you are interested in hosting a Clan Forbes tent at your local gathering, games, or festival, please download the Clan Forbes Convener Guide and let us know how we can assist you!
