Highland Gathering and the Perth Kilt Run
September 9 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pmFree – $10
Join us to celebrate all things Scottish at the largest Highland Gathering event held in Western Australia! You don’t need to be Scottish to take part in this annual tradition, so gather your family and friends to enjoy the visual spectacle of kilts, bagpipes and a medieval fair.
The morning begins with the fun and quirky Perth Kilt Run. The only fun run in Australia that’s done in a kilt! Purchase your very own kilt when you register prior to the event and take part in the 2.5km Classic or the 5km Warrior. It’s a fun run with a difference and you’re guaranteed to have a good time.
As you’d expect the excitement doesn’t stop there. Following the Perth Kilt Run you’ll have the rest of the day to experience Scottish arts and crafts, highland dancing and bagpipe competitions, meet and greet Scottish dogs, watch the hotly contested Heavy Events competitions and of course test your taste buds with the infamous haggis and other Scottish delights.
Let your imagination run wild in the medieval fair or the clan village and then kick up your heels with live music and Ceilidh dancing.
This is a large event with a number of road closures, so we recommend planning ahead to avoid delays.
This is a family friendly, smoke and alcohol free event. Further details and Perth Kilt Run registrations will be available through www.perthkiltrun.com.au or the Facebook event on the City of Armadale Facebook page.
