Held each year on the first Saturday in July, at Aberdeen in the Upper Hunter Valley of New South Wales, the Aberdeen Highland Games have become the town's most spectacular event, drawing hundreds of people to the township every year to enjoy the festivities.

The Games begin with a parade of bands, clan representatives and others that leads into the Massed Band Salute and Chieftain's Address that officially opens the day. Throughout the day there will be fun for all the family - there will be Highland and Country Dancing, Pipe Band displays, Strong Man events with the Tartan Warriors to enjoy as well as tug-of-war, egg tosses, three-legged races, and the famed Kilted Dash to participate in. A multitude of stores and stands will surround the area selling all manner of Scottish heirlooms and souvenirs, clothing and garb, and food and drink to complete your day.
