Embro Highland Games

July 1, 2017
Embro, ON, Canada

Popular with visitors of all ages, the Embro Highland Games offers a wide variety of entertainment with admission pricing geared to families.

In addition to watching our various piping, athletic and dancing competitions, you can inspect vintage cars, watch dogs at work, investigate Scottish clans, shop at our vendor booths, or enjoy a meal and licensed refreshments. If you want to become more actively involved, try your hand at log sawing or maybe the farmer’s walk. Youngsters have their own just-for-fun competition.

We host more than 5,000 spectators and competitors, but the grounds never seem overcrowded, and free parking is always available.

Whether you are a spectator or serious competitor, you are always welcome.
