Saturday, May 19th, 2018

The annual Victoria Highland Games & Celtic Festival is held over over a 10 day period, culminating in the May long weekend events held at Topaz Park in the City of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.

This is one of the oldest festivals in North America and one of the very few 3 full day Highland Games. The festival regularly attracts around 25,000 people to the Topaz Park events each year.

For 2018, the 155th 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 pubcrawl, 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 2018!

Highlights for the 2018 Games weekend are:

Massed Bands at noon and 4pm on Saturday and Sunday
Professional Celtic Music Bands
World 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
Fascinator Competition (see registration form above)

Note: Vehicle parking is always an issue around Topaz Park. The VHGA is working hard to provide additional parking options for 2018, in addition to the existing large bike lockup area and extensive public transit service.
