    63rd Annual Ligonier Highland Games

    Date: September 17

    The ultimate Scottish Festival takes place at Idlewild in the fall. Join us for heavy athletic competitions, vendor fair, Scottish dancing, pipers, fiddlers, harpists, Living History, and more! This event is presented by the Ligonier Highland Games and not the park. This year, the park will be in operation, and the Highland Games will be in a private area with a seperate admission. Guests may purchase tickets to the Highland Games only and not be able to ride rides, to the park only and not be able to watch the Games, or to both the park and the Games and get to do both. Online tickets sold via the park website are for the park only, but guests may add on a $20 Highland Games admission day of.  There are no other third party ticket sellers for the Highland Games - admissions are only able to be purchased from Ligonier Highland Games or at the park gates.
