The grounds are grassy and there are no paved pathways, but the site is flat and generally navigable in good weather. We offer wheelchair-accessible portalets, and there is designated parking for those with disabled parking permits.
Can I bring my dog to the games?
Due to city rules, dogs are not allowed at the Montreal Highland Games. Please do not try to sneak your dog in; we do not want to have to ask you to leave the Games.
What do I wear at the Games?
The most important thing to wear is your Highland Games wristband! Security guards have the right to ask you to show your wristband at any time. Attendees not wearing their wristbands will be escorted to the Entrance Gate and asked to purchase a ticket to the Games. Please note that all supporters who are accompanying competitors and performers (athletes, dancers, musicians, etc.) MUST PURCHASE THEIR OWN TICKETS.
Depending on the weather it may be best to wear something to help you stay cool as the majority of the events are under the sun. Of course, traditional attire will always be more fun!
