Calgary Highland Games

The Calgary Highland Games is one of the oldest gatherings in North America and will be celebrating 105 years since the first games, held in 1913. Organised by the Calgary United Scottish Games Association, these games have gained the reputation as being one of the most prestigious Highland events in the West. Attracting competitors and spectators from across Western Canada and the USA, you will watch some of the world's top pipers, drummers, dancers, and heavy event athletes compete and perform.
