THE SCOTTISH INVASION IS COMING! The bagpipes are wailing, the drums are pounding, and the Celtic thunder can only mean one thing: The Greenville Scottish Games have returned. After eight years of epic growth, the Games have earned a new name that’s big enough to reflect the history of this massive celebration. Gallabrae— where legendary Scottish tradition meets rich Southern heritage.
This year, break out your plaid for two whole days of the Highlands, with everything from authentic food and crafts to piping and drumming performances. There’ll be a parade, traditional Scottish activities for the wee ones, border collies, highland dancers, and competitions as colorful as your clan’s tartan. Catch the heavy athletics games, where you can watch brawny Scotsmen toss cabers, throw axes,
and send boulders flying. Stomp your feet for some blood-stirring Celtic music at our legendary Scottish concerts. As always, we’ll pay a Memorial Day tribute to the brave service of the Scottish and U.S. military. Gallabrae is bound to make this a Memorial Day weekend you won’t soon forget.
GREAT SCOT! PARADE May 23th | 6:00 pm sponsored by Furman University We wouldn’t be Scottish if we didn’t outdo ourselves every year. The 2014 parade will start at North and Main and continue to the Peace Center. Woods Faeries, pipe bands, Scottish re-enactors, Scottish Chiefs, marching clans, axe throwers and more. Greenville may never be the same!
GREAT SCOT! CEILIDH May 23th DOWNTOWN GREENVILLE 7:30 pm TD STAGE at the Peace Center Cleghorn and Seven Nations are going to put some Celtic soul, rhythm and passion into Greenville’s nightlife! Tickets are $10 and they can be purchased on the Gallabrae.com website or there will be a few left for sale at the gate. Truly, this will be a crazy-Celtic night to remember. Food and adult beverages will be available for purchase.

GREENVILLE SCOTTISH GAMES May 24th at FURMAN UNIVERSITY | OPENING CEREMONY AT 10:15 AM TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED ONLINE AT GALLABRAE.COM OR AT THE GATE.
HEAVY ATHLETICS Some folks would call this event the star of the show, and why not? It’s not everyday you get to watch tough men (and women) toss telephone poles and boulders like it’s easy. In addition to the stone tossing, you’ll see axe throwing, sheaf tossing, and caber tossing competition. Sponsored by the Greenville Health System.
THE BRITISH CAR SHOW The elegance and craftsmanship of British classic cars has moved the world. This year’s featured marque is Sunbeam. Sponsored by Jaguar of Greenville.
PIPE BAND COMPETITIONS With bands boasting hundreds of members, Gallabrae hosts some of the finest bagpipe performances in the country. Get ready to enjoy the sheer thrill of the pipe band competitions, but also be sure to keep your ears open for the haunting melodies of the solo bagpipers.
These dogs are so smart, you’ll feel plain dumb watching them. Be sure to catch this favorite event, where border collie teams and their handlers will demonstrate extraordinary sheepherding skills, in addition to other impressive tricks and obstacle courses.
Give your little tykes a taste of Gallabrae at their own miniature Scottish village, where they’ll have the chance to create crafts, participate in kid-sized athletic events, climb “mountains,” play games, and try their hand at other traditional Scottish activities. Woods Faeries, hurlers and Shaemus will all be there!
TICKETS ALSO AVAILABLE AT THE GATE.
6:30 pm After you’ve partied like a Scot all day at the Scottish Games, find your second wind and head back to Furman for an incredible concert, featuring three high energy Celtic rock bands. Cleghorn, Cu Dubh and Seven Nations will be ready to jam all night. And of course, there will be plenty of beer. Tickets are available at gallabrae.com or at the gate the day of the event.
