The 61st Festival of the Tartans & Highland Games
The Festival of the Tartans Committee cordially invites all Clan organizations to attend our Highland Games in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia.
This year, the Festival of the Tartans will take place from July 12
to the 15
with the Highland Games taking place on Saturday, July 14
at the Tartan Field in New Glasgow, Pictou County. Saturday’s Games will include Highland Dancing competitions, Pipe Band performance and demonstrations, the Scottish Heavyweights contest, Genealogy tents, and concessions including a beer tent.
The Games are an opportunity for tourists, visitors and the general public to experience and learn about traditional Scottish culture and heritage, and to have some wonderful conversations, whether one is Scottish or not! The presence of the Clans helps to make this happen!
We do hope you will be able to join us!
All registered clans will be listed on this page. If you would like to include your logo/tartan or any pictures, please send them along.
