Longs Peak Scottish-Irish Highland Festival

One of the best weekends in Estes Park is just around the corner!

That’s right… the Longs Peak Scottish-Irish Highland Festival is happening between September 7 – 10, 2017! From jousting and Irish dancing competitions, to bagpipes and Celtic music, there is guaranteed fun the entire weekend. Some of the most unique and exciting events to watch though, are the Scottish Athletics competitions. World class athletes will be competing all weekend in events such as full-armor jousting and throwing contests involving hammers and 20-foot long, 140-pound wooden poles!

There will also be dogs of the British Isles making appearances throughout the weekend. They will be in the main street parade Saturday morning, and will also be strutting their tails during the “Grand March of Dogs” on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.  Check out the full schedule of events by clicking here.

We still have lodging available for the weekend, so make sure to book today by calling our reservation hotline at 888-613-9622. Choose between cabins or lodge rooms and enjoy free access to our mini golf course, hiking trails, game room, swimming pool, and yoga classes. We even have a free shuttle to downtown Estes Park that stops every hour outside Hempel Auditorium between 8:30 AM – 8:30 PM.

We’re here to make it a memorable and safe weekend for all of our guests!
