Planning is well under way for our 32nd New Brunswick Highland Games Festival, to take place July 26 to July 28, 2013 on the grounds of Government House.
Competitors and spectators rank our festival as the best in eastern Canada. For the third year in a row, the NB Highland Games Festival was named one of The American Bus Association 2012 Top 100 Events and Festivals!! We are proud of these distinctions and recognize that since 2002 the generosity of Friends of the Games has helped us maintain this excellence.
Each year the challenge is to offer something that will guarantee freshness to the traditions of heavy events, highland dancing, piping & drumming, educational elements and Celtic entertainment. All this can happen again for 2013 with the hard work of many volunteers, with the extraordinary level of commitment by the Friends of the Games and along with other fundraisers.
Please join us for a Fundraiser Breakfast, on Saturday, April 13 in the Community Room of Willie O’Ree Place from 8:00AM to 10:30 AM. The breakfast cost is $6.00 per adult and $4.00 per child. What a great way to meet many of the organizing committee!
