156th Victoria Highland Games & Celtic Festival

For 2019, the 156th Victoria Highland Games & Celtic Festival will be the largest in its history with an expanded list of activities and events.

The celebration of Scottish and Celtic music, arts, and culture starts off with a Tartan Parade through downtown Victoria the Saturday before the Games weekend and includes the tilted kilt pub crawl, clan torchlight ceremony and a series of performing arts activities.

The Victoria Day holiday weekend in Victoria is a great time to visit this spectacular city and the Games are one of the premier events to attend! Hope to see you at the Games in 2019!

Highlights for the 2019 Games weekend will include:

  • Massed Bands at noon and 4pm on Saturday and Sunday
  • Professional Celtic Music Bands
  • International Heavy Events Championship
  • Simon Fraser University Grade 1 Pipeband
  • Canadian Invitational Drum Major Challenge
  • Scottish Highland Dance and Irish Dance Feis
  • Scottish Clans and Societies
  • International HEMA Blade and Stick Fighting Tournament
