Something for everyone

Popular with visitors of all ages, the Embro Highland Games offers a wide variety of entertainment with admission pricing geared to families.

In addition to watching our various piping, athletic and dancing competitions, you can inspect vintage cars, watch dogs at work, investigate Scottish clans, shop at our vendor booths, or enjoy a meal and licensed refreshments. If you want to become more actively involved, try your hand at log sawing or maybe the farmer’s walk. Youngsters have their own just-for-fun competition.

We host more than 5,000 spectators and competitors, but the grounds never seem overcrowded, and free parking is always available.

Whether you are a spectator or serious competitor, you are always welcome.

New for the 2016 Games…


Please join us for fireworks the evening before the Games.  The show will take place at the Embro Community Centre starting at 9:45 on Thursday night, June 30th.  There will be no admission fee to see the fireworks, but donations will be cheerfully accepted.

… and returning favourites.


A two km run geared to elementary school children has been introduced this year, in addition to the annual five and 10 km races that attract over 200 runners.


A women’s heavy event competition which was a real crowd pleaser last year will be back again. It shares the field with the annual men’s Ontario Heavy Events Championship, featuring the top points competitors from across the province.


An ATM machine is on-site within the Community Centre building and we will once again have a debit machine at the front gate for admission payment.
