Over the past 36 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
