Few events are a bigger deal in the Western portion of Canada than the Calgary Highland Games. What started back in 1913 has exploded into one of the oldest and biggest gatherings in the North America. This is an event that gives you an opportunity to embrace, explore, and celebrate any Scottish heritage you might have. If you don’t have a Scottish background, it can still be a great opportunity to learn something new.
What Activities Will There Be?
You might be asking yourself – what kind of activities do you have to look forward to if you come to this event? Some of the activities include:
- Stock Dog Demonstrations
- A Viking Battle
- A Children’s Activity and Play Area
- A Tug O’ War Competition
The above activities are activities that will happen in addition to the usual and typical activities that happen during this event.
Do You Have To Be Scottish?
One of the biggest concerns people have about coming to this event is whether or not you have to be Scottish. If you are not Scottish or have some kind of Scottish line in your family tree – are you going to feel left out? Is this some kind of exclusive event for Scottish only? Of course not!
If you are not Scottish you should consider this event to be an incredible learning experience. This event is an opportunity for you to learn about it. Haven’t you ever wanted to learn more about a heritage that you do not know anything about?
This year the event is taking place on September 5th – but, this is an event that takes place every year like clockwork. If you do not have the pleasure of enjoying the event this year, just fit it into your schedule next year. The event is fun for people whether or not they are Scottish.
