Aberdeen Highland Games


The annual Aberdeen Highland Games take place first weekend in July each year. It is the final event of Scottish Australia Heritage Council's Heritage Week.

During the event more than 23 events take place with stalls providing food and Celtic displays all of which represent traditional Celtic culture and recreation as well as the traditional Kirkin of the tartan. The games are a gathering together from Sydney and regional New South Wales of pipe bands, Clans, dancers, heavy events, and state and interstate tug-of-war teams to celebrate the Celtic history of the Upper Hunter.

Following the excitement of the Highland Games there will be an authentic Scottish Ceilidh. The English Dictionary defines a ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) as "an informal social gathering, with songs, story-telling, music and dancing". The Ceilidh is always a great night out where everyone is welcome.
