For almost 20 years, our award-winning festival has welcomed thousands of visitors from all over North America to the beautiful lakeside town of Kincardine to join us in celebrating all things Scottish.

Thank you Volunteers!

Our volunteers are the heart and soul of the Kincardine Scottish Festival & Highland Games. We rely on the generous donation of time, skill, and passion our volunteers bring each year. Since the Festival’s beginning in 2000, thousands of volunteers have dedicated their time and talents to the Festival, helping to make the Festival one of Ontario’s most popular events of the summer.

We are always looking for volunteers to help leading up to and during the Festival. Whether you donate an hour or a day, we aim to make your volunteer experience both enjoyable and rewarding. Volunteers can assist with site set up/take down, gate and ticket sales, Clan Parade marshalling, staffing the Visitor Information Booth, or serving in the Beer Tent (SmartServe required), among other areas!

Interested in volunteering with the Festival? Send us an email or give us a call at 519-396-9300 to get involved!


The Kincardine Scottish Festival relies heavily on help from our friends, be it in the form of volunteering, in-kind goods and services, or financial donations. We are grateful to the many businesses who have made sponsorship donations and without whom we could not deliver the quality Festival that you have come to expect of Kincardine.

Gifts of any size are gratefully received and recognition is given accordingly. Please contact the Festival Office for a full listing of sponsorship opportunities for 2018.
