The famous Blackford Highland Games have been held since 1870 on the park, an area of land loaned to the community by the landowner. A condition of the loan is that the Highland Games are held there annually in May.
In 2020 we celebrate 150 years of Highland tradition. We welcome visitors to our Games with a full list of events including throwing the hammer, tossing the caber, putting the shot, tug o’ war, athletics, track and field events, Highland dancing, trade and refreshment stands. 2020 will be a special year– don’t miss it.
