Come and see the country’s leading strongmen and mighty strongwomen compete in this hugely popular Peak District and Derbyshire annual event!

About

The Peak District Highland Games is now in its 6th Year.

This year we have both men & women competing for the Peak District Highland Games trophies! Featuring jaw-dropping events, including The Eight Tonne Tractor Pull, The Peak District Dinnie Stone Challenge, The Tossing of the Caber, The Giant Stone Throw, The 120kg Log Press and The Stone of Destiny Carry!

The opening ceremony begins at 10:45am with the first event in our lawned arena starting at 11am and the last event finishing around 5pm (times subject to change).

There will be lots going on elsewhere in the park to join in with, including Jungle Jo and her interactive exotic animal experience, craft, market and games stalls, food stands, beer tent, Gin Garden and more… There’s all the usual fun of the farm park too, with lots of animal interactive activity for all and play areas for the children.

On this day the park will be open from 9am - 5:30pm.
