The Canmore Highland Games is an annual event taking place each year on Labour Day weekend since 1991. The Games events are held at Centennial Park, one block from Main Street. Certain aspects of the games are so well known as to have become emblematic of Scotland, such as the bagpipes, the kilt, and the heavy sports, especially the caber toss. While centered on competitions in piping and drumming, dancing, and Scottish heavy athletics, the games usually feature live Celtic folk/rock bands, a Celtic market, sheepdog demonstrations, clan booths, beer garden, whisky tasting, Massed bands, and more.
