The 38th edition of the Montreal Highland Games came to a close late afternoon Sunday, August 2nd, in traditional Canadian-Scottish fashion with the trophy presentations and the pageantry of the massed bands.
On behalf of the organizing committee and Games sponsors, I would like warmly to congratulate all the competitors: they presented our many visitors with fine performances, creating memories that will surely last a long time.
I would like also to thank the corps of volunteers — you who ensure that everything runs smoothly on the day, thereby seeing to it that the Games will continue to thrive in good form in future years.
See you July 31, 2016 in Verdun, Quebec.
President, The Montreal Highland Games Society
The Games are back at Parc Arthur-Therrien in Montreal’s borough of Verdun (QC).
Over the past 37 years, the Montreal Highland Games 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 Glengarry (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.
Every year, the Montreal Highland Games brings together Montrealers of Scottish and all other backgrounds to celebrate Highland games, music and culture.
The Games represent a wonderful opportunity for participants and visitors alike to discover the treasures, legends and history of the rich Scottish culture.
Come and be part of a great Montreal summer tradition
