Over 200 highland dancers compete each year at the NH Highland Game & Festival on Saturday and Sunday. With origins based on Scottish legend and history, the dances are a spectacular combination of strength, agility, movement, music, and costume. One of the oldest traditional dances of Scotland, the Highland Fling, signifies victory of battle. The Seann Triubhas began as a political protest after the battle of Culloden in 1746 when the English banned the wearing of the kilt. Legend says the Reel O’Tulloch began in a churchyard on a cold winter morning when the minister was late for his service. Stop by and experience this rich Scottish tradition.
