Welcome to the New Highland Dancers' of Ontario Website - We hope you enjoy it and find it helpful.


We are still under construction in some areas - Entries and Membership are in the testing phase. We hope to get this completed as quickly as possible so we can offer on-line entries this summer for those Games that have opted for this method. Once testing is complete, we will post both here and on FaceBook - check back often.


Entry forms for the Ontario Closed Championships and Georgetown Highland Games have been available for some time. We have now posted Cobourg Highland Games, Kincardine Scottish Festival, Cambridge Scottish Festival, and Uxbridge Scottish Festival on the Entries Page. Currently all these Events are mail-in only. Just download the pdf by clicking in the upper right corner. and mail it in. Fergus Scottish Festival will soon have on-line entry available on its website. Just click on the link.


The results for the 2017 H.D.A.O. Competitions are posted. Results of the H.D.A.O. Events will be posted as the Events take place. And we will be working on adding the sixteen years of results on an ongoing basis.
