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.

The Festival & Community Groups

We are proud to work with and receive support from the Municipality of Kincardine and a number of community groups such as KDSS Robotics Club , the Kincardine Theatre Guild, Bluewater Summer Playhouse, Community Living Kincardine & District, Royal Canadian Legion MacDonald Br. 183 Kincardine, and the Kincardine Scottish Pipe Band.


The Kincardine Scottish Festival & Highland Games is a not for profit incorporated organization run by a volunteer Board elected by our members. All proceeds are turned back into the operation of the Festival. The Festival has one part-time paid staff member, the Event Manager, while the remainder of the work is done by volunteers. An Annual Report is available to members upon request.

Code of Conduct

All board members care about the safety of its participants and patrons. As such we have all read and signed the Code of Conduct for which the Kincardine Scottish Festival & Highland Games are proud to abide by.
