Cobourg Highland Games Seeks Volunteers

2018 SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

The Pipes and Drums of Massed Bands

Pipes & Drums at the Cobourg Highland Games

The Cobourg Highland Games will again be at Victoria Park in Downtown Cobourg where there is a beautiful beach on the shores of Lake Ontario.

There will be Solo Piping and Drumming competitions all morning starting at 8:30am. Hear the Pipes and Drums echo over Lake Ontario as 25 or more Pipe Bands start our Opening Ceremonies at 12:00pm. The cry of the Pipes and the echoes of the drums will fill the Park during the massed bands and the competitions of the Bands competing from Grade 1 to Grade 5 for titles and prizes all afternoon. Join the bands after the competitions in the refreshment tent to cheer on the winning bands of each level.

We are members of the Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario, if you would like to compete in the Solo and/or Pipe and Drum Band Competitions.

Contact the PPBSO to register for competition in our Games.
