Name of creator
The New Brunswick Highland Games and Scottish Festival was incorporated as a Not-for-Profit-Corporation under the New Brunswick Companies Act, on May 30, 2003. The organization attained Canadian Revenue Agency charitable status in the spring of 2005. The New Brunswick Highland Games and Scottish Festival Inc. (NBHG&SF) was incorporated with a mandate to advance knowledge of Scottish/Celtic culture and heritage in New Brunswick by holding an annual festival presenting educational workshops in language, genealogy, history, cuisine, the arts and traditional atheletics as well as show-casing performing arts, crafts and traditional athletic events.
NBHG&SF accomplish the objective by continuing the presentation of the New Brunswick Highland Games and Scottish Festival which has been held annually since 1981. The Games were first held in Oromocto until 1991, then moved for a brief time to the Fredericton Exhibition Grounds before settling into the current home on the grounds of Government House on Woodstock Road in Fredericton.
Until 2002, the New Brunswick Highland Games and Scottish Festival was organized by a committee of the New Brunswick Scottish Cultural Association (NBSCA) but became independent in late 2002 when the NBSCA dis-associated from the event. With the support of the NBSCA, NBHG&SF was formed to operate the Games.
The New Brunswick Highland Games Festival is organized by a volunteer Board of Directors supported by an event organizing committee and festival volunteers. Key partnerships include the Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick and staff of Government House, the City of Fredericton, the Province of New Brunswick and Canadian Forces Base Gagetown as well as the local business communities and supporters of the Friends of the Games Program.
