The purpose of the Caledonian Games Association is "to preserve and perpetuate Scottish social manners and customs" as sited in the 1899 Constitution of the Caledonian Society of Umatilla County; and to illuminate the city of Athena and its heritage. Our shared vision is to sponsor the Caledonian Games, a Scottish Heritage Festival with games, events, entertainment, music, food and dancing that are founded in the Scottish tradition.
You are encouraged to help Caledonian’s mission to "promote and perpetuate our Scottish traditions" by donating $50 to Athena Caledonian Games and becoming a Caledonian Sustaining Guardian. You will be listed in the program and you will be invited to sponsor a sheep dog and receive two tickets to the Saturday night Tattoo. Caledonian’s mission has been to celebrate our Scottish heritage since the first games and picnic in 1899. Please make donations to Athena Caledonian Games, P O Box 161, Athena, 97813 by May 30.
For 2014 Athena Caledonian Games have simplified the fees for vendor spaces. Read more.
THE ATHENA CALEDONIAN SHINDIG RETURNS SATURDAY, JULY 12! Read more.
In the interest of presenting the widest variety of Scottish-themed entertainment, and because we had so much fun with last year’s Shindig, Athena Caledonian Games has again chosen to host a “Shindig” instead of a Highland dancing competition. Fans of the Scottish dances, don’t worry; dancing will still be a major part of the program.
We would like to thank all who attended and participated in this years games. We are looking forward to seeing you all again next year.
Bob and Deborah Johns
