US Army West Point Hellcats

The West Point Band's field music group, The Hellcats, is comprised of bugles, piccolos, and drums,

and serves as a showpiece for the United States Army and the United States Military Academy.

The Corps of Cadets gave The Hellcats their name as a friendly jibe in response to the group's early morning playing of the wake-up call reveille every day at West Point.

As the Army's first and only remaining field music group,

The Hellcats trace their heritage back to the American Revolution, when General George Washington established the garrison of West Point

and appointed a fifer and drummer for signaling in camp.The West Point Band is the Army's oldest active-duty band,

founded on the beautiful and historic grounds of the United States Military Academy in 1817.

with the intent of honoring past and present cadets, graduates, and service members.

The Longs Peak Scottish Irish Highland Festival has been a highlight of September in Estes Park for 48 years; with Celtic Music, Ethnic Dancing, Bag Pipe Bands, Scottish Highland Athletics, representatives of many Clans.

In the early 1970's Estes Park was like most mountain towns relying on summer tourism with ended with Labor Day weekend.  47 years ago the festival's  founder, a resident of Estes Park, had a vision to extend the fall season to the valley.  He started this festival recognizing that September was a beautiful time for people to come to the mountains and with the perfect temperature, all that was needed was an event.  And the Longs Peak Scottish Irish Highland Festival came into being.  Over the years this Festival has become the most attended event in Estes Park.
 
Your support will allow us to continue to provide the culture experience in 2024 and forward into the future.
