What makes the New Brunswick Highland Games Festival so special is that the event has two equally important halves - the Highland Games (piping and drumming, highland dancing and traditional athletics) and the Scottish Festival (entertainment, clans and workshops) Although provincial in scope, the event draws hundreds of competitors and performers from across Atlantic Canada, Ontario and the Eastern seaboard. Listed as one of New Brunswick's "Top Festivals", the New Brunswick Highland Games Festival is one of the largest events of its kind in Atlantic Canada and is certainly a favourite amongst competitors and visitors alike. The event has twice been named an Attractions Canada Award Winner, including Best Provincial Sporting Event. Each year, nearly 100 volunteers and 8,000 visitors come to Government House for this pageant of music, colour and Scottish culture.
