Canada Day is fast approaching and July 1, 2019 will mean the end of Early Bird pricing for gate admission and Up The Glens Kilt Run registration. Get your order in before the end of day June 30 to save on these tickets. For 2019 we've made running in the Up The Glens Kilt Run more affordable! This year everyone who registers will receive an admission ticket for free. Adult Early Bird registration is only $40.
If you've been holding off on getting grandstand tickets you might want to get those now as Saturday seats are over 65% sold. Grandstand tickets are available for online purchase until July 23, 2019. Any remaining seats will be sold at the Grandstand Booth on Games weekend. This year the Grandstand Booth will move to the Metcalfe Centre patio beside the Patrons Booth.
Patron Packages will start being mailed out to our patrons during the first week of July. If you haven't renewed your package for this year, or are considering becoming a patron, see our Patrons Page for the details on this program.
Have you ordered your Tartan Ball tickets? If you've never attended, maybe start at new tradition by attending with some friends this year. For many this formal event marks the start to Games weekend. Enjoy a 3 course dinner served with wine and haggis, and later entertainment will be provided by The 2 Paddys and Friends. When you submit your order you will have an opportunity to let us know of any special dietary requests or if there is a table of friends you would like to join.
Perhaps you are considering attending one of our Whisky Tasting sessions this year. Join Brian McQueenie from OuiDram Whisky Tastings at either 2:00pm or 4:00pm on Saturday, upstairs in the Metcalfe Centre. Seating is limited to 40 for each sitting. Find the link to register on our Whisky Tasting page.
New for this year the Harp Workshop is accepting free registrations for participants through Eventbrite. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the workshop and we are delighted to welcome back Sharlene Wallace to lead it on the Friday in the Metcalfe Centre. Registration is free, you will need to pay gate admission, and you will need to bring your harp. If you do not play the harp you are welcome to come and listen.
