Games Information

  “The BC Highland Games and Scottish Festival acknowledges the financial assistance of the Province of British Columbia and the City of Coquitlam.”

Thank you for coming to the 85th BC Highland Games and Scottish Festival.

We had a fantastic Friday night piobaireachd competition with great piping and a full house in the Highland Pavilion.  Coquitlam’s mayor Richard Stewart, and several MLA’s were on hand for the Highland Reception, and we kicked off the Games in Highland style.

Umbrella - Essential item.Then on Saturday, it was Mother Nature’s turn to do the kicking. Highland Games go on, rain or shine, and we did just that.  Everything went ahead – the highland dancing, piping, drumming, heavy events and the grand finale. Thanks to the great crowd who stuck it out to the end. And we wrapped it up with a ceilidh in the tent-covered beer garden.

Next year Mother Nature will be on our side. In the meantime, here are some great photos from our fantastic photographer Leslie Achtymichuk.
