Piping, Drumming and Drum Major Registrations

The VHGA has been attracting more competitors (Dancers, Solo and Pipe Band, Heavy Events and Drum Majors) and increasing attendance at the Victoria Highland Games over the last few years by adding new events and format changes.

Based on the feedback that we have received over the years, in 2017 we will be expanding the pipe band and solo competitions to a full 2 day schedule (Saturday and Sunday,  May 20/ 21).

Our hope is that more solo competitors and bands will attend the Games and take in the high quality and variety of events, including the Heavy events, Highland and Irish dance competitions, Celtic sports, Whisky school, Celtic music, Entertainment stages and the Heritage and Clansman tents.
