Glengarry Highland Games

First long weekend in August

Since the first Glengarry Highland Games were held in 1948, the people of Glengarry have extended close to a million welcomes to visitors. The games are one of North America’s largest festivals of Scottish culture.

Thousands of people find themselves drawn each year to Maxville to witness an outstanding display of music, dance, sports, fiddling, pageantry, and tradition. The Glengarry Highland Games include traditional Scottish events such as the caber toss, tug of war, and the sheaf toss. More than 200 dancers defy gravity in the Highland Dance competition and giants to hurl telephone pole-sized cabers and 50-pound iron hammers around the infield. It is a memorable and incredible event.

Glengarry Pioneer Museum

Opened in 1962, the Glengarry Pioneer Museum consists of several nineteenth century log heritage buildings and artifacts.

The museum’s original structure started life as MacIntosh’s Store in the 1840s. It then became the Star Inn, a stagecoach stop in the 1860s. It is during this period that the inn is furnished to reflect… including the original barroom, believed to be one of the oldest in Eastern Ontario.
