The Celtic Arts Foundation, in association with the Clan Heather Dancers presents a number of Highland dancing competitions and events throughout the year. Two of the events we present; the Celtic Arts Foundation Highland Dancing Championship (held in February), and the Northern US Highland Dancing Championship, (held during the Skagit Valley Highland Games in July – please see entry forms and information below), are officially sanctioned championship competitions, as designated by the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dancing (SOBHD).

The 2018 Celtic Arts Foundation Highland Dancing Championship will be held Saturday, February 17th 2018 at the Syre Center on the campus of Whatcom Community College in Bellingham.  The Northern US Highland Dancing Championship will be held July 14 at the Skagit Valley Highland Games in Mount Vernon, WA.  Entry forms for all of our competitions, as well as results from those competitions will be available on this page.
