Brush off your kilt and shine up your dancing shoes. After two years of announcing the sad news that the Glengarry Highland Games was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions, games organizers have announced that the planning has started for a full version of its much-anticipated event to be held July 29 and 30, 2022.

All planning for the 73rd edition of the Highland Games will be done following guidelines set out by the Eastern Ontario Health Unit. With that in mind, plans may change, but games organizers are hopeful that the gates on the Kenyon Agricultural Fairgrounds in Maxville will be open and a full slate of events, competitors and entertainers will be there to welcome everyone to a reunion and celebration everyone has been longing for.

“I am looking forward to welcoming everyone to the 73rd Glengarry Highland Games,” said games President Eric Metcalfe. “We all have missed this amazing celebration of our Scottish heritage and it is time to get together and Glengarry is ready to celebrate!”

“Our committees will be working hard over the next months and we will be ready to host all the competitors, participants and visitors.”

As the planning unfolds, updates and event information will be posted on the Glengarry Highland Games website and social media. Check back frequently to follow the news at
