Event Canceled

The Hororata Community Trust has made the difficult decision to cancel the 11th Hororata Highland Games planned for the 6th of November 2021. The Hororata Highland Games is a significant outdoor event attracting around 10,000 people annually, and can only operate in alert level 1. Any competitors who have paid will be automatically refunded to the credit card they paid with. This could take 7 working days to show in your account.

All competitors will be issued a competitor pass and will need these to enter the event, regardless of age.
