FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 2, 2021


Regrettably, I have to announce the suspension of the 2021 edition of the Antigonish Highland Games. Our Board came to that difficult decision at our March meeting, having given careful consideration to current social gathering restrictions and our expectations of the rules that will apply in July of this year.

We are confident that the Games as we know them will be a reality in 2022. In fact, we are already in the planning stages for a spectacular return to this much-loved event.

Last year, we created a “virtual” version of the Games which was received enthusiastically by viewers far and wide.

We are not letting this year go by without celebrating our Gaelic heritage and culture as circumstances will allow. Stay tuned for announcements in the coming months as to what those events will look like and when they will take place.

We look forward to welcoming one and all in 2022.

Ciad mille failte!

President, Antigonish Highland Society
