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. Please let the Clan Forbes Society if your festival or convener is not listed by contacting Vice President for Conveners Leslie A. Furbish.


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!
