On behalf of the volunteer organizing committee of the very first Newport Celtic Festival & Highland Games, I would like to thank our generous sponsors, vendors, perfomers and all the wonderful volunteers for your belief in our vision of bringing a celebration of Celtic heritage to the Oregon coast. While our idea started among a small group of community members who shared Celtic heritage and this common vision, your support has made it possible for this dream to become a reality.

For details visit newportcelticfestival.com 541-265-7783 SPECIAL CONTESTS AT THE NEWPORT GAMES The CLAN MACLAREN CHALLENGE CABER competition is a specially made caber just for this event. The contest is open to all qualifying competitors in the Newport Games. Sponsored by Clan MacLaren, the winner receives $100 and has their name engraved on the caber for posterity. THE ANCHOR TOSS is a regular marine anchor weighing approximately 65lbs. The competition is open to all Newport Games competitors. Longest throw wins $100. These two events will be held at the conclusion of the regular Highland Games events.
over a thousand years ago in Scotland, when the Clan Chiefs used athletic competitions as a way to choose the best warriors. It was a chance for families and extended families (the clan) to connect, socialize and take pride in their traditions. During the years of English occupation (some say that includes current times) military training with arms was forbidden, so the contests of strength at the annual clan gatherings had to improvise. Most modern day versions of the games not only stage the athletic contests, but celebrate the music, dance, food and drink of Celtic culture.
HEAVY COMPETITIONS CABER is the Gaelic term for a long tapered pole or log. The goal is to toss the caber so that it turns end over end, landing in a straight line in the direction of the run. If successful, the athlete has “turned the caber”. SCOTTISH HAMMER is similar to the hammer throw in modern-day track and field, but in the Scottish event, a round metal ball of up to 22 lb. is attached to the end of a shaft about 4 feet in length. Throwing is for distance. SHEAF TOSS is bundle of straw (the sheaf) wrapped in a burlap bag. It weighs about 20 lb. and is tossed vertically with a pitchfork for height. STONE THROW is similar to modern-day shot put, but instead of a steel “shot”, a large stone of variable weight is used. There are two divisions, “standing put” is from a fixed posistion and “open stone” where the thrower is allowed to use any method, as long as the throw is with one hand with the stone cradled in the neck until release. WEIGHT FOR DISTANCE consists of two separate events; the light weight (28 lb.) and the heavy weight (56 lb.) The weights are made of metal and have a handle attached. The longest throw wins. WEIGHT FOR HEIGHT is also known as “Weight Over the Bar,” requires athletes to toss a 56 lb. weight over a horizontal bar using only one hand.
