These currently include - chronologically - The Colorado Tartan Day Festival, typically in early April and currently in Longmont; the Pikes Peak Celtic Festival, typically in mid-June near Colorado Springs; the Elizabeth Celtic Festival, typically in mid-July near Elizabeth; the Colorado Scottish Festival in early August returns to Denver; and the "Creme de la creme" of Colorado, the Longs Peak Scottish-Irish Highland Festival and Games, always the weekend after labor Day in early September.
