Welcome to the official website of Moncton Highland Games, already plans are underway to make the 2013 Games the toast of the atlantic seaboard.
Enjoy playing your part in this unique experience. The Moncton Highland Games were first held in 2007 at Victoria Park under the auspices of the Moncton Chapter of the New Brunswick Scottish Association.
This year's event promises to pack even more excitement, skill and music into one full day of competition, display and cultural events.
Highland Games originated among the Scots' Celtic ancestors and became a customary part of their life.
Events such as tossing the caber and putting the stone, and competitions in playing bagpipes and Highland dancing formed the core of the festivities, along with footraces, wrestling and tug-o'-war, and novelty events such as three-legged races or the Best-Dressed Highlander competition.
Emigration from Scotland dispersed the Highland Games and brought them to North America (where they are often referred to as the Caledonian Games).
