Please note: The 14th annual Greater Moncton Highland Games & Scottish Festival, scheduled for June 14 - 20, 2020, have been cancelled in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.


The Games were honoured to host the inaugural 

Canadian Scottish Athletic Federation’s Lightweight Championships in 2019

and look forward to welcoming hundreds of competitors from around the world for

the Masters Heavy Athletics World Championships in 2021.

The Greater Moncton Highland Games features highland dance,

pipe, drum, and pipe band competitions as well as dozens of workshops and demonstrations covering everything from Gaelic language and song to

 falconry and sheep dog herding to historical elements. 

And don’t forget the petting zoo, wagon rides, and bouncy castles for the kids, 

and the ceilidh tent with tunes & treats for all! 


The Greater Moncton Highland Games and Scottish Festival takes place 

at the Hal Betts Sportsplex (along the waterfront in downtown Moncton), 

the perfect hub from which to enjoy an East Coast cultural adventure.  


Fàilte! 

Thanks to our 2019 Competitors & Attendees
