Every summer, the Montreal Highland Games brings together people from all backgrounds together to celebrate the heritage of Scotland.

The Games represent a wonderful opportunity for participants and visitors alike to discover the treasures, legends and history of the rich Scottish culture.

The festival features a massive parade, caber toss, tug of war, cannons, highland dancing, armoured combat, and traditional Scottish food and drinks.
