2017 Academy Award nominations: The snubs, surprises and what happened to Scorsese?

Jackson Hole Scottish Festival

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

An evening ceilidh (Celtic social event) brings music of the British Isles, with harpists, singers, dancers, bagpipers and drummers. The Scottish celebration also has a bonny-knees contest (male knees, female judges), bagpiping and drumming competitions. Nationally ranked amateurs compete in athletic contests including the caber toss, which involves flipping a heavy pole, and the sheaf toss, where a 16-pound bag is heaved over a bar. Last year's winner topped 27 feet.

When, where: Aug. 17 and 18 at the Teton County Fair Grounds, 305 W. Snow King Ave.

Admission: $5 per person per day.
