N.L.A.S. Fairgrounds in Almonte, Ontario

Celebrate the Scottish culture and heritage of the Ottawa Valley at the 35th annual North Lanark Highland Games in Almonte, Ontario. The Games offer a traditional format and size attracting about 6,000 visitors. Twenty pipe bands, a hundred dancers and champion heavyweight athletes combine to present what is recognized as one of the Ottawa Valley’s premier summer events.

With mini games and free admission for kids and the picturesque Mississippi River as the backdrop, the Almonte Games have a reputation not only as having the prettiest site but also as being the friendliest Games on the Ontario circuit.

Guest of Honour


In 2017 the NLHG welcomed Guest of Honour John Randell Souter to the field. John was the founder, the first Chair, and the longest serving Director of the North Lanark Highland Games, as well as being devoted to his community of Almonte in many other ways.

Join us in August to meet this year’s Guest of Honour.

Duty Band


In 2017 the NLHG welcomed Ottawa Highlanders Pipes and Drums to the field as Duty Band. A composite pipe band, formed to help celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary, was based in Ottawa but hailed members from all parts of Canada.

Join us in August to meet this year’s Duty Band.
