Forres Highland Games take place every year in July in the magnificent setting of Grant Park, Forres.

Games day commences with a Pipe Band procession up Forres High Street before the Games flag is raised over the arena.  The day follows with a spectacular show of Scottish tradition, sport and culture with Highland Dancing, Track and Field, Heavy Events, Tug ‘o’ War, Solo Piping and may more disciplines on display.

Unique to the Forres Games is the Message Bike Race, where spectators can turn participant and race the field on an old traditional message bike in hope of lifting a winners trophy.

During the day you can enjoy splendid hospitality for you and your family in the Games arena with hot food catering, ice cream, shopping at local trade stands, face painting and fun on fairground attractions too.
