Aberdeen Highland Games

July 3: Jefferson Park, Aberdeen

Covid-19 forced the cancellation of the Aberdeen Games last year and has lead to some alterations to the usual program of events for this year. Despite the restrictions, the event is sure to continue to be a major drawcard for the area and promises to be just as fun. The Ceilidh and Tug O War won't return in a bid to ensure the safety of people during the pandemic however, there will be plenty of frivolity with the pipes and drums, highland dancers and kilted warriors all returning. This year will be a ticketed event to comply with current restrictions. for more information visit: www.aberdeenhighlandgames.com/

FUN AND FRIVOLITY: The Aberdeen Highland Games is set to return on July 3 after its cancellation last year due to Covid-19.
