About Us

This unique event is best described as a traditional Scottish Highland Games with a  Kiwi twist. The competitions are at the heart of the event, and the Games are the only event on the South Island that offers all the traditional Scottish competitions.

The Hororātā Highland Games were established as the main fundraising focus for the Hororātā Community Trust to support our rural community. Over 200 volunteers join  Clan Hororata each year to bring this festival to Canterbury.
