The annual Aberdeen Highland Games take place on first weekend in July each year and are run in conjunction with the Scottish Australia Heritage Council's Heritage Week.
During the day a number of events take place together with stalls providing food and Scottish / Celtic displays all of which represent traditional Celtic culture and recreation. The games are a gathering of pipe bands, Clans, dancers, heavy event participants, state and interstate tug-of-war teams from Sydney and regional New South Wales to help celebrate the Scottish / Celtic history of the Upper Hunter. There are a number of novelty events for children.
Following the excitement of the Highland Games a traditional Scottish Ceilidh is held in the evening. The English Dictionary defines a ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) as "an informal social gathering, with songs, story-telling, music and dancing". The Ceilidh is always a great night out where everyone is welcome.
