The Conservatory of Performing Arts band competing at the 2016 Winnipeg Scottish Festival.

Winnipeg, Manitoba – March 26, 2016 – The Winnipeg Scottish Festival had a slightly smaller entry this year, reflecting some bands’ reluctance to travel on Easter weekend, but the afternoon band events still drew a capacity crowd to the indoor venue at the CanadInns Convention Centre. In the Grade 4 QMM event the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders were disqualified for playing a medley of hornpipes.
