9:00 AM 44th Annual San Diego Scottish Highland Games The air at Vista's Brengle Terrace Park will be filled with the sound of bagpipes when the San Diego Scottish Highland Games and Gathering of the Clans mark a colorful 44th anniversary celebration during the weekend of June 24-25, 2017.

Scottish culture will fill the park during the two day festival, which will feature a variety of activities and entertainment for guests of all ages: Sheepdog trials, Highland dancing, Scottish vendors, cuisine and beverages, bagpipe and drumming competitions, clan heritage tents, and hands-on children's activities.

Athletic lads and lassies can compete in Scottish competitions, such as the caber toss, stone throw, hammer throw and weight for distance.

The festival's popular beer garden--recognized by San Diego Magazine as the Best Beer Garden in North County--will be a gathering place where attendees can sample flavorful beer varieties, while mingling with friends old and new.

Popular Celtic bands Wicked Tinkers, Highland Way and Banshee in the Kitchen will join United States Scottish Fiddle Champion Mari Black as entertainment headliners performing on two festival stages.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Music: 8 Songs For a Mad King Award winning Bodhi Tree Concerts presents the San Diego premiere of 8 Songs for a Mad King.

Representing maverick composer Sir Peter Maxwell Davies at his most avant-garde, it pushes performers to extremities of technique and emotion. Requiring the command of 'tremendous' registers and distorted vocalizations, the music seems to emanate from the 'king's' delusional mind.

Daring, interactive audience experience with contemporary themes, comparing Mad King George III of England and the current US president.

Performed with chamber orchestra - a must see for the artistically adventurous.
