Welcome to the 2022 Embro Highland Games

 Whether you are a local, a visitor, a competitor, or kin, Embro Highland Games, the oldest Scottish games in Ontario, warmly welcomes you back!

Our gathering is a celebration of Scottish heritage and tradition with dancing & music by the Métis, competitive Highland dancing, massed pipe bands, piping competitions, and heavy events. It is a day of fierce rivalry where hammers are thrown, cabers are tossed and runners race for the line, the skirl of the bagpipes fills the air and the flash of clan tartan surrounds you.

A family-friendly spectacle where you can pet Highland cows, Shetland ponies, and other animals native to Scotland. Watch sheep herding displays, Scottish dogs on parade, and even join in kilted yoga! There is an area for the children with organized Scottish-themed crafts and activities; for the adults, we offer fully licensed grounds with an outdoor bar offering amazing local craft beers and gin, live Celtic music, original vendors, and fabulous food trucks.

Join us on July 1st as we celebrate Canada Day, and take time to honor with a delegation of dignitaries from Taiwan the accomplishments of ‘The Black Bearded Barbarian’, Rev. George Leslie Mackay, who arrived in Taiwan 150 years ago. Find out how the son of a local Scottish immigrant family became so highly revered by the Taiwanese people!
