The Glengarry Highland Games-75 times perfection

When the crowds start flooding the gates of this year’s Glengarry Highland Games on August 2 & 3, they will be following in the footsteps of thousands of fans who have made this festival one of the most popular in Canada and one of the premier Celtic events in North America.

This year’s 75th edition of the Games in Maxville, Ontario, will include the traditional Scottish events of highland dancing, fiddling, heavy events and piping that everyone has come to love and enjoy.  To celebrate its 75th, the Games has added many special events making for two jam-packed two days of music, tradition and heritage.

The Games will host this year’s World Scottish Highland Games Heavy Events and welcomes the best in the sport to our infield. Friday night’s famed Tattoo will headline Canada’s Celtic Ambassadors, the Barra MacNeils, and to honour the 100th Anniversary of the RCAF, the RCAF Pipes and Drums will also perform. To the delight of many long-time Games fans, long-term Games MC Reg Gamble has been selected as this year’s Guest of Honour.

At Saturday’s breath-taking Games closing, the massed drum fanfare will return based on the hugely enthusiastic response to the performance at last year’s Games.  Many more surprises are in the works for this milestone celebration of Scottish heritage and the welcome is out to all to come and discover the magic at the 75th Glengarry Highland Games.

The 75th Glengarry Highland Games will take place August 2 & 3 in Maxville Ontario. For details see:
