The 2022 Festival Is Dedicated to Charlie Hunter
Charlie Hunter (1950-2022)
Charlie was a valued longstanding volunteer who has greatly contributed to the success of our Festival and will be dearly missed.
We dedicate this year's Festival to his memory.
Welcome to the Kincardine Scottish Festival & Highland Games!
For over 20 years, our award-winning festival has welcomed thousands of visitors from all over North America to the beautiful lakeside town of Kincardine to join us in celebrating all things Scottish.
Our festival aims to preserve, enhance, and celebrate Kincardine’s Scottish roots. Enjoy three days and nights of lively music, exciting competitions, cultural workshops, and friendly small town hospitality. Cheer on your favourite, Highland athletes and dancers, trace out your ancestry, march with the historic Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band down Queen Street, and enjoy the sights and sounds of over 30 Scottish pipe bands from across Canada and the United States.
Located in Victoria Park and surrounding area, our festival is in the heart of Kincardine and we encourage you to experience the beauty and hospitality our town has to offer during your visit.
We pride ourselves in honouring the traditions and contributions of Scottish culture within the Canadian multicultural mosaic. We look forward to seeing you at our next Kincardine Scottish Festival & Highland Games!
