Aberdeen Highland Games

Each year Hazlehead Park hosts the Aberdeen Highland Games on the third Sunday of June with an assortment of contests such as caber tossing, hammer throwing, Highland dancing, solo piping and tug of war. It usually attracts about 15,000 attendants.

Entertainment includes Pipe and Drum Bands, charity stalls, trade stands, food and drink tents and a fun fair.

There will also be a mini Highland Games just for primary school children. Eco City run stands for the children to teach them about recycling and being environmentally friendly.

Other stands will focus on energy efficiency, composting and fair trade goods for sale.
