Come celebrate all that is Scottish. Embrace the bagpipes, watch the kilts fly during the jigs and reels, be awed by the stone putt and caber toss. Wander through the vendor stalls and cheer on the sheepdog competition. The BC Highland Games, now referred to as ScotFest, is a fantastically fun family-friendly event.

I grew up competing in the BC Highland Games. A few years ago we took our boys and had a terrific time. No one we knew was competing but we thoroughly enjoyed the pipe bands, the family activities, and watching the sword dance competition.
