Virtual Highland GamesJul 31, 2021 - Jul 31, 2021
Friday, July 30 and Saturday, July 31
The fairgrounds in Maxville may be empty the last weekend in July this year, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be ways everyone can still enjoy a little taste of the Glengarry Highland Games. Whether it’s online or in person, there will still be occasions for people to don their kilts and Games t-shirts and celebrate their celtic heritage.
If you missed last year’s Virtual Games concert, then you will have another opportunity this year to gather all the clan together for a wee ceilidh and watch the show starting on Friday, July 30 at 4 pm. The token toss and the massed highland fling will be back for your viewing pleasure as well as a few clips on the past heroes of the heavyweights.
Pipers Compete Online
Some new features will be aired and will interest a lot of our Games fans. If you are missing the sound of the pipes, the Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario (PPBSO) is presenting a Glengarry Highland Games online contest for solo piping and drumming open to all its members. The final results of the competition will be streamed live at the traditional time of the closing massed bands, 6 pm, on Saturday, July 31.
Scottish Fiddlers Entertain
many of Glengarry’s finest fiddlers gathered at the Metcalfe Centre in Maxville to put together a Scottish Fiddle concert which will premiere on the Saturday of the Games. Check out this show for a listen to some of your favourite fiddlers plus a bonus performance by the Glengarry Massed Fiddlers. You’ll recognize some of your friends and neighbours as you enjoy the show. The concert organizers promise a few surprise guests as well. It will premiere at 7 pm on Saturday, July 31.
