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.
We are saddened to announce that our long standing Sheep Dog judge Karen Mohney has passed away. Her loss is not only felt by the Athena Caledonian Games but by the world of Sheep Dog Trials. She will be missed.
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.
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.
