The Aberdeen Highland Games are on again!

Saturday 3rd July 2021

Following a year of confusion and disruption, due to COVID, the Committee of the Aberdeen Highland Games are really looking forward to getting back running the annual event. It would appear that at this stage the event will run along similar lines to our usal Games but obviously there will be a few changes due to COVID regulations.

Our event is run as a typical Highland Gathering where the crowds can expect to see the massed pipes & drums, the Kilted Warriors with their feats of strength, highland and country dancing, novelty events for the kids and the numerous stalls. These stalls include various clan societies, those with various Scottish and Celtic products as well as a variety of food outlets. We have some fourteen pipe bands booked in for the day; it will be a great spectacle.

The Upper Hunter Tartan has produced a great deal of interest in the local community as well as from other areas. Products including, scarves, shawls, rugs, ties as well as other Games merchandise will be available on the ground on the day. Our kilt maker will be on the ground also and will be able to take any orders for those looking for a kilt in the new tartan as well as to supply the accessories to go with it.

The traditional Ceilidh normally run following the Games will not be run this year due to COVID, but we believe there will be something in the evening.

There will be a Quintet Competition for pipe bands, and this will be run at the Aberdeen RSL club, not far from the ground. This event is run under the banner of the NSW Pipe Band Association.
