The BC Highland Games answer the questions: Who is the strongest? Who can flip a huge log (caber) to land perfectly at the 12 o’clock position? Who is the best piper or drummer, dancer or pipe band? Taking place in BC for more than 100 years, and in Scotland for centuries, these games complete with a full festival with delicious food, concerts, and fun for the whole family.

Enjoy Scottish delicacies, like haggis and Irn Bru while the kids get their faces painted. Pop into the beer garden, and enjoy live Celtic music from The Paperboys and other bands on Lew Ross Field North. In the northwest section of the park, some of the world’s best highland dancers will be competing.
As the name suggest, the BC Highland Games are all about the competitions. From pipes, drums, bands and dancing, to stone putt, hammer toss, caber toss and more.
The inaugural Tartan Run will take place on Friday, June 14th. It’s the first ever BC Highland Games 5 & 10k Tartan Run (and walk) at 6:30pm. The run finishes at the new Games site for a free concert-in-the-park with a beer garden, vendors, bagpipers, whisky school and The Paperboys on the Ceilidh Stage (bring lawn chairs).
