We hope you will join us for fun, adventure, music, competitions, and a flavor of things Scottish at “The Friendly Games” April 25 and 26, 2015 at the Yolo County Fairgrounds in Woodland, California. In 2015 we will celebrate our 139th Anniversary since the Caledonian Club of Sacramento was first organized in 1876. Not bad.

To us, the “Games” means anything that is a competition related to our Scottish culture: athletics, highland dance, piping and drumming, and drum majors. “Festival” represents activities that are to be enjoyed, participate in, and watched: children’s area, entertainment, vendors, country dance, fiddling and harps, kirkin’, historical area, Scottish animals, and eating. There is something Scottish for everyone, and you don’t have to be Scottish to have fun.

Our theme this year is: A Little Scotland in Your Backyard. It means that you can experience a taste of Scottish culture without having to travel thousands of miles. Please join us in celebrating things Scottish through entertainment, dancing, pipes and pipe bands, music, animals, athletics, drum majors, vendors, and other colorful elements.

Top Scottish Heavy Athletes are coming to the Sacramento Valley Games! Matt Vincent, No.1 in the World is returning this year. Beth Burton, from Chico, is ranked No. 3 in the World among women in Scottish Heavy Athletics, and she will also compete. We are one of the few Games that feature all classes of Scottish Heavy Athletics. By the way, the caber competition is one of the last events of the day!
