Celebrating their 20th birthday, this year's event promises to be a bigger spectacle than usual with all things Scottish represented on the day. 12 hours of entertainment - highland dancing, caber tossing and traditional field games, axemen's carnival, clan gatherings and genealogy, pipe bands contest, Tartan in the Park with a clan street march that leads into the evening's Tattoo. This starts at 6.30 and is 2 & 1/2 hours of entertaining highlights from the day's events, performances by Celtic singer Celine Toner, Mark Taipari and the WaiTaiko Drummers building to a magical finale of massed bands and finally the lone piper standing on the parapet of the mock Edinburgh Castle who closes the event.

Paeroa is the only Highland Games to hold a Tattoo and it is a stirring and dramatic end to a fabulous day. This year sees the inclusion of the Junior Field Games which aims to give youngsters a try at these skills and encourage them to keep the traditions alive - sign up on the day. A photographic competition is held each year with prizes for the best picture in each category taken on the day.

This is an event you must experience at least once in your lifetime - come and join us at the Paeroa Domain.
