On Saturday join us at our New Location at Cobourg's Victoria Park in Downtown Cobourg on the shore of Lake Ontario, on June 15th from 8am to 10pm. Bring the family and enjoy the Pipe and Drum Solo competitions, Pipe Band Competitions with 25 Pipe bands competing, administered by the Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario, Ontario Highland Dance competitions and Heavy Event competitions on the beach. We have 120 metres of sidewalk going through the park that we are hoping to fill with Clans and The Shakespeare Street Theatre will also be joining us again this year to stage parts of one of his famous plays. If you like shopping, there will be many Scottish and Celtic merchandise and food vendors in which to shop. For approximate times please see the Schedule of Events page.
Join us for a 50th Celebration Ceilidh (party) in the refreshment tent from 6pm to 10pm with Celtic Entertainment by Hadrian's Wall.
Bring your towels and beach gear, because if the weather is hot, you might want to take a swim during the day in the beautiful waters of Lake Ontario or just play in the sand with the echoes of the Pipes and Drum bands playing against the waves of the lake.
There are paved walkways throughout the park, which makes it very wheelchair accessible to all the events and lots of shade trees to sit under and enjoy the music. There will be bleachers in the Band Competition area, but you will need your lawn chairs for the Highland Dancing and the Heavy Events.
