The 33rd New Brunswick Highland Games Festival Organizing Committee has planning well underway for our July event on the grounds of Government House in Fredericton.  What a tradition we have created!

The New Brunswick Highland Games Festival offers top quality competitions, top quality performing artists and workshops.  In the Scottish festival genre, we are the best in Eastern Canada!

The amount of resources needed to create this successful festival becomes greater year after year.  The longevity of “The Games” depends on a 20-member volunteer Organizing Committee plus nearly 200 volunteers on the weekend who collectively commit thousands of hours to the event’s success.  The Organizing committee takes a frugal approach to the financial planning of this event by sourcing best prices.  Even so, we also need additional funds so we ask individuals like you for your charitable contribution.

We have always been encouraged by the community support.  If you have not already done so, please renew your Friend of the Games status.  If you have not been a supporter before, start a new tradition and become a Friend of the Games.  All donations will receive a tax receipt.  The attached information describes the different levels and benefits of your Friends contribution.  If you can't afford $100 to become an Amethyst Supporter, we will gratefully accept whatever is comfortable for you to give.  With your permission, pledges of $100 or more will be posted on the Games website at

On the Games Weekend, July 25th to 27th you are encouraged to take advantage of the friendly, comfortable surroundings and complimentary refreshments of the Friends/VIP Tent.  This is an exclusive benefit available only to Friends of the Games, Partners and invited VIP guests – and is a great rest spot and meeting place rain or shine during the weekend.

We encourage you to be as generous as you can and ensure the continuation of this great cultural event.  Please invite your friends and family to come aboard and become a Friend of the New Brunswick Highland Games Festival. 

See you at The New Brunswick Highland Games Festival… July 25 to July 27, 2014
