Aberdeen Highland Games 2020

As a result of Government regulations, and the need to take every responsible action to contain COVID-19, the Committee of the Aberdeen Highland Games has decided to cancel this year’s Highland Games that were to be held on the 4th July next.

It is regrettable that we have had to take this action, but the health of the Nation comes first, and we must do our bit to help alleviate the pandemic.

We now look forward to the Games of 2021 trusting they will be bigger and better than ever.

Please do not hesitate to make contact if you have any queries.

Charles Cooke – President.

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 Tartan Warriors to enjoy as well as tug-of-war, 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 traditional Ceilidh, to be held at the Scone High School MPU, as well as a Pipe Band Quintet competition at the Aberdeen RSL Club.
