Tallahassee Highland Games is more than just an event; it's an evolution, a renaissance of our rich traditions, and a beacon for our collective future.

2024 Honored Clan: Clan Sinclair

  We are immensely privileged to spotlight Clan Sinclair as our honored clan for the Tallahassee Highland Games 2024. Gracing our games with their esteemed presence, The Rt. Honorable The Earl and Countess of Caithness will be joining us, symbolizing the strength and grandeur of Clan Sinclair.

 Our alliance with Clan Sinclair runs deep. Not only are we celebrating the rich tapestry of history, tales of valor, and profound mysteries associated with Clan Sinclair - from their ties with Robert the Bruce to connections with the Knights Templar - but we also rejoice in the bond forged through one of our own founders being a proud member of Clan Sinclair.

 In conjunction, Clan Sinclair will be holding their Annual General Meeting (AGM) during the Highland Games. Hosting such a significant event within our games is a true testament to the union and collaboration we cherish with Clan Sinclair. All members and enthusiasts are encouraged to participate, ensuring this becomes a memorable gathering.
