Capital District Scottish Games
September 4 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm
The Altamont Fair, taking place August 17–22, isn’t the only fairground-worthy festival coming to Guilderland’s little sister this summer. Celebrate your Scottish heritage (or, if you’re not Scottish, pretend you are for a day!) at the Capital District Scottish Games, which has been a fixture in the region for more than 70 years. The event will include bagpipe bands, highland dancing and athletic competitions (think hammer throwing and caber tossing), vendors, kids activities, overnight camping and, of course, kilts galore. Tickets range in price from $18 for general admission to $140 for entrance into the patron’s tent.
