Notice of Cancellation.

 Further to the NSW Health update of Thursday 26th August, the Committee have found that there is no option but to cancel the Aberdeen Highland Games for 2021 that had previously been postponed to 2nd October 2021.

Although this is extremely disappointing, I feel that making this decision now allows us to move forward and put our efforts into the next year’s Games, to be held the first Saturday of July, 2022.

Thank you all for your continued support of our event.

What's On

The Games begin with a parade of bands, clan representatives and others that leads into the Massed Band Salute and Chieftain’s Address that officially opens the day. Throughout the day there will be fun for all the family – there will be Highland and Country Dancing, Pipe Band displays, Strong Man events with the Kilted Warriors to enjoy as well as three-legged races, and the famed Kilted Dash to participate in. A multitude of stores and stands will surround the area selling all manner of Scottish heirlooms and souvenirs, clothing and garb, and food and drink to complete your day.

In the evening there will be a Pipe Band Quintet competition at the Aberdeen RSL Club.
