Stone Mountain Highland Games
October 16-17, 2004


Join us in 2004 as we celebrate our 32nd year.

The picturesque grounds of Stone Mountain Park, a short drive northeast of Atlanta, Georgia, will once again be hosting the Stone Mountain Highland Games and Scottish Festival. This will be the 32nd year Scots from around the world will don their family tartans and gather to the sounds of bagpipes flowing through the pine-shaded meadow of this unique and most impressive park. As for the weather... well, we are expecting another glorious fall Georgia weekend.

Come join our honored guests, and many old friends.
You don't even have to be Scottish to have a great time.

Clans invited to sponsor are limited to those Scottish Clans whose chief is entitled to three feathers or, if the chiefship is vacant, would be entitled to wear three feathers upon being recognized as chief by the Lord Lyon. Our primary source for making the determination of qualifying clans is Scottish Clan & Family Encyclopedia by George Way of Plean and Romilly Squire.

Shamalama good job on telling everyone about the Atlanta Games. I wish they'd get new blood in there for music groups, like Wolfstone or the GlengarryBhoys.

My heart will always be in the Highlands!
