The Colchester Games is a multicultural gathering uniting the peoples of our county in one event.
It is a traditional Highland Games with a twist.
We not only endeavour to bring you all the traditional elements of a Scottish Highland Games such as
Heavy weights, Highland Dancers and Pipes & Drums
but a variety of events to keep the whole family entertained.
In this, our second year, we are bringing a host of new activities and entertainment to our schedule.
We will also have indoor facilities if weather is inclement.
You will find all the information you need on the following pages.
We hope you will be able to join us for a spectacular show on
The Tatamagouche Road Train will be heading to Truro for the Colchester Highland Games.
Sponsored by Hollis Ford of Truro this is a great opportunity for those unable to travel to Tatamagouche to experience the fun of riding the train to catch it right here in Truro.
There will be multiple stops between downtown and the NSPEC where the games are being held. There is no cost to ride the train, but all donations are greatly appreciated.
