Be part of the games!
Highland Games Overview
Stirling Highland Games continues to attract thousands of visitors to our annual event in August. Our tradition extends back to 1870 when the first highland games event was held in Wellgreen in Stirling.
We continue to market Stirling Highland Games throughout the globe as a destination for visitors to come and enjoy Stirling and the surrounding Scottish area. We welcome enquiries from traders interested in adding to our success story.
Many of our visitors are from throughout the UK as well as overseas. They are interested in seeing and buying quality products directly from the people that make them and most of them would welcome a chat about its provenance.
If you wish to be part of the day and believe you can help provide a positive experience, we would love to hear from you! Read more about us below to see which part of the event your business could trade at.

Be part of the traders experience
Thank you for your interest in being one of the traders at Stirling Highland Games.
Market Traders [arts/crafts/business], Activities Challenge [sports, clubs] and Food & Drink Traders [Artisan Food or Drink producers] Information and Applications can be found below.
Traders will be allocated space within the respective areas, designed to maximise customer dwell time and encourage engagement. We are seeking to appoint a diverse range of traders to showcase the widest possible choice to our visitors.
We especially want to hear from traders that can tell our visitors about how you source and produce the products you have to offer. We will be carefully selecting our traders to ensure our visitors take home the best quality and variety of Scottish product.
We are looking to include the same or similar walk and chat showcase of traders in The Food & Drink experience marquee with our host Cate Devine, the Glasgow Herald food and drink writer [more details to follow]. Producers don’t need to participate but we are always looking at ways to help drive more business sales your way on the day.
We encourage traders to apply from Scottish Arts and Crafts, Scottish Clans and local sports with a view to appealing to both a Scottish audience as well as other visiting nations.
Priority is given to traders that uphold the principles of Ceangail CIC’s event ethos.
Traders products should be available to purchase via cash, with traders also encouraged to offer card provision too (please note Wi-Fi connection is not available).
