For the fifth year in a row, the valley’s Scots and Irish are inviting the world to the Daly Mansion for the Bitterroot Celtic Games and Gathering August 23 and 24.

The two days of activities will highlight competition – between pipe and drum bands, between Highland and Irish Dancers, and between professional and amateur athletics in such competition as the caber toss, the sheaf toss and more. The Grand Entry and official opening will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, though competition will have started at about 10 a.m. that day.

There’s free parking at Hamilton High School on Fairgrounds Road and free shuttle buses running regularly between the school and the Daly Mansion, just a short way north on the East Side Highway.

The weekend features clan gatherings and a host of interesting vendors. There are Scotch and Mead tastings, too. 9:00 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 9:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The group Brother will perform at 3 p.m. Saturday and again at the Saturday evening Ceilidh (with free admission)

Admission to the grounds will be $10 per day or $15 for a weekend pass. Kids are $5.
