The 24th Annual Paeroa Highland Games & Tattoo will be held on Saturday 11th February 2017 at the Paeroa Domain. What started out as a small Pipe Bands Competition has grown over the years, and today is a fully-fledged Highland Games, one of only seven such Scottish gatherings in New Zealand, and the only one in New Zealand to hold an Evening Tattoo.
This celebration of Scottish culture is attracting interest throughout New Zealand as well as internationally. Attendance numbers have shown steady growth to a record 8,000 in both 2013 and 2015. It is now a major undertaking by a small team of passionate volunteers who believe in putting something back into the community in which they live.
Evening Tattoo - 6.30pm:
A kaleidoscope of massed bands, music & displays. Including: mace flourishing, Ode to the Haggis, farmers walk, toast to the caber, ANZAC caber challenge... all adding up to a 2 and a half hour family spectacular.

Evening Only (from 5.30pm): $15 adults, $5 children (5-15yrs)
