Purchase your tickets in advance and then come to Town Centre Park for the fun. Take the Skytrain directly to the Games or take your bike. There’s a free bike valet. There will be activities for kids, food vendors (including veggie options), Scottish and other national foods, check out the British cars, listen to the performances on three stages including the Heritage Stage, or watch the REMAX Scottish heavy athletes throw big objects all over the Lew Ross Field. Hang on to your seats for the massed pipe bands flowing down onto the fields around 5:15, and then join the pipers & drummers for a ceilidh in the big tent afterwards with our headline act.
On Sunday, it’s a World Music Festival with Main Stage host Gurdeep Pandher of the Yukon, and three other stages and performance areas, including international workshops open to everyone. And Sunday is free!
There are activities for the bairns, èildears and everyone in between. All are welcome, and something for everyone.
So come for the pipes and bhangra dancing and stay for the haggis & bru. And maybe a pint or two with new and old friends.
