Montreal Highland Games 2017

Pipes and Drums, Highland Dancers, heavy weight competitions including the caber toss, sheaf toss, hammer throw and putting the stone from competitors from throughout North America, Celtic bands
and much more!

Over the past 40 years, the Montreal Highland Games has become one of the premier events on the North American Highland games circuit.

​The Montreal Highland Games is always held on the Sunday following the Glengarry (Maxville) Games, which makes it a double header for pipe bands, athletes, Highland dancers and spectators. Among competitors, this has become known as the M&M weekend.

Every year, the Games brings together Montrealers of Scottish and all other backgrounds to celebrate Highland games, music and culture.

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

Fore the kids –
Due to last year’s success, kids will again have their own mini Highland Games with their very own caber toss, hammer throw and Highland costumes to try on. There will be four bouncy castles, face painting and medieval battles by trained professionals where kids can partake in play “combat” training. This is, of course, in addition to all the Highland Games events where children are competing, namely, in the Highland dance competitions, as well as the band competitions.

For the adults –
The Celtic village will feature an array of Celtic merchants with clothing, musical instruments, jewelry, baked goods, culinary delights and Scotch sampling, a long with pipe band and fiddle and harp performances, Scottish Clan displays, Highland dancing and many more activities!

Foodies will be delighted to have the opportunity to experience Haggis, traditional shortbread cookies, highland beef dishes and more…

Sunday, August 6 at the historic location of the Douglas Hospital grounds.
