Blaine, Washington, U.S.A.


It is with immense pride and enthusiasm that we announce The Bellingham Scottish Gathering will be held in Blaine June 1st, 2024. 

First and foremost; the Bellingham Scottish Gathering is a celebration of Scotland's culture.  Blaine's ' By the Sea' theme is the focus of special events planned for the festival.  The working harbors of Scotland are mirrored in the city's active fishing and boating communities.

We are also delighted to provide exciting news to the Highland Dancing Community: For the first time, the Bellingham Open Highland Dancing Championship will be a feature of the 2024 Highland Games!  Newly Sanctioned by the Royal Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing; we look forward to welcoming competitors to the prestigious competition in a location sure to attract international visitors.
