PIPE BANDS FROM AROUND THE WORLD...

We’re delighted to be hosting the 2024 European Pipe Band Championships. Come along and see (and hear) this incredible spectacle that should bring over 130 pipe bands to the fair city.

KEEP UP TO DATE

What's on this year?

What does the day look like?

The Perth Highland Games runs from 9am until… well… it’s finished. This is usually after 5pm when we have a massed pipe band performance. Certain events run all day such as the Highland Dancing, the Heavyweight competitions and the Track and Field events. And of course, this year we have a LOT of pipe bands to get through so the air will be filled with the sound of the pipes all day long.

And although we can’t tell you exactly when the caber will be tossed, we CAN say the whole day is full of things to see and do – plus you can get your hand stamped to get back in if you’d like to visit the city centre while you’re here!

GETTING TO THE GAMES

We’re expecting a LOT of people this year with the European Pipe Band Championship taking place as well so we’d highly recommend using public transport to get to the event. The bus station and train station are just 10 minutes walk from the entrance so they are ideal for getting you to the games.
