Piping & Drumming

The Highland Games event offers individual competitions for the Highland Bagpipes, Side Drum, Tenor Drum, and Bass Drum.

Pipe band competitions are also held, including the Drum Major competition. One of the most impressive sights of the Highland Games is the massed bands, where all of the competing pipe bands march onto the field together and play some of Scotland’s favourite tunes.

The day of the Games, individual competitions begin at 8:30am and conclude by noon. Band competitions will begin after opening ceremonies, approximately at 1:30pm. These competitions will take place in the competition circle located at the northwest corner of the main field.
