Summer Festivals

Antigonish Highland Games

When: July 7-9 2017

Ceilidhs, concerts under the stars, clan gatherings and ancient Scottish lifting events are among the tradition-steeped activities on offer at this cultural festival. There’s an intensely sporty side to this gathering too—runs, bike races, farmers’ walk and the wild and wonderful Scottish heavy events (these ones you probably don’t want to sign up for unless you’re a qualified brute). If you’re feeling strong after taking part in the tug-of-war, watch the caber toss or the hammer throw and be humbled.

Price: $70
