Wee Bairns Tent (Children's Area)

The Glengarry Highland Games is pleased to sponsor a new area especially for young children (Wee Bairns) to enjoy and spend some fun time. The area will promote some Scottish traditional music and events that young children will be able to enjoy and participate in, both Friday and Saturday. Parents are encouraged to accompany their children or take a break in a nearby tent that overlooks the area. All the events will be under tents in a treed area with adjoining facilities.

Drop by for a few minutes or spend some quality time that will give your Wee Bairns some treasured memories of the 2017 Glengarry Highland Games.
