We're on the move -
The Montreal Highland Games are ‘on the move’. After holding this annual event in suburban Pierrefonds/Roxboro for eleven years, the organization has secured a new home at Angrignon Park the South-West Borough of Montreal (Arrondisement Sud-Ouest). This location is by far the best venue we have ever had for the Highland Games & Celtic Festival. It is the biggest site we have ever occupied and is blessed with hundreds of shade trees, picnic tables and benches and even a scenic lake. The park is also a stop on the Montreal Metro (subway) line. A short walk of about two hundred meters will take you from the Metro Station to the Games. There is also parking for over 1400 cars in the nearby parking lots ($8.00 per day) or one can cruise for a free parking spot on adjacent streets.
As Angrignon Park is a Montreal public area, there will NO ADMISSION charge to the Games. We have secured sponsors to help cover the costs of the day. We are still looking for additional participation from interested companies and individuals who may be interested in being a sponsor, or sponsoring a specific event. People attending may also be asked for a suggested donation at the entrance of the site to contribute to the complete success of the Games.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen logistical problems, we will only be able to present the next edition of the Montreal Highland Games & Festival on August 2nd & 3rd, 2014. We will be working diligently over the next 15 months to present the best Scottish Festival this city has ever seen in one of the most idyllic venues one could possibly imagine.
So, please take note that there will be no Highland Games for the summer of 2013 and mark your calendar now for August 2nd & 3rd, 2014.
A 36 year tradition-
Over the past 36 years, the Montreal Highland Games & Festival has become one of the premier events on the North American highland games circuit. The Montreal Highland Games is always held on the Sunday following the Maxville Games which makes it a double header for pipe bands, athletes, highland dancers and spectators. (Among competitors this has become known as the M&M weekend.)
Fun for everyone
The Montreal Highland Games & Festival is always a real family event and the kiddies have not been forgotten. The kiddies’ corner features inflated bounce rides, pony rides and other activities designed especially for them. All these activities for the children are free.
