Established 1947
The Seattle Scottish Highland Games Association, a self-supporting non-profit (c)(3) group, was formed in 1947 by a local group of prominent Scots. The Association provided this group of fellow Scots a means of keeping their ethnic origin alive as well as stimulating an interest in Scottish Highland Games through Scottish dancing, piping, drumming and athletic competition. Listed among the first patrons were Emil Sick, Governor Arthur Langlie, Mayor William Devine and John L. Scott.

The first “Seattle Scottish Highland Games” were held in the West Seattle Stadium. Since that time the Highland Games have become a true Pacific Northwest event, thus the name change in 1980 to the “Pacific Northwest Scottish Highland Games & Clan Gathering.” Our other sites have included Bothell, Burien, Everett, Fort Lewis, Kirkland, Renton, the Seattle Center, and now the Expo Center (formerly the King County Fairgrounds) in Enumclaw.

The Seattle Scottish Highland Games Association is dedicated to the perpetuation of the Scottish arts, their traditions & customs to inspire new generations to take part in their stories. Bringing Scotland to the Pacific Northwest for over 70 years through the skirl of the Pipes and Drums, the beauty of Highland Dancing, the brawn of Scottish athletics, and the sharing of clan history. The Association provides venues that explore connections to your Scottish ancestry.

The Clan Gordon Pipe Band was formed In 1955 when a group of Scottish immigrants and Americans pooled their experience, and, with the sponsorship of Clan Gordon, formed the Clan Gordon Pipe Band in Tacoma, Washington. We are now a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit.

​The first Pipe Major was Johnnie Montgomery, father of longtime member, Jack Montgomery. Even though Clan Gordon is no longer our sponsor, we retain our original name. We are successful in our primary purpose: to bring the music of the highland bagpipe to the Pacific Northwest.

We are now recruiting new pipers and drummers! We have a teaching program for those interested in learning our music. Our fee is waived if you stick around and join our band
