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.
Whether you’re Scottish or not, all are invited to celebrate the Highland Games activities.
The gates open at 8:30 am on August 5 and throughout the day, visitors can partake in and watch a range of events.
Fiddle demonstrations and medieval combat at the same place? Sign us up!
Tickets are $15 a person (free for kids under 14 years of age) and an early bird special knocks the price down to $12.50 until July 27, available online.
