Tug-of-war was reintroduced to the Antigonish Highland Games in 2005 and has quickly become one of the Games’ most thrilling spectacles. Traditionally, this event has showcased at Maritime Agricultural Exhibitions. Teams are assembled in the fall to compete after planting and before harvest. With the Games in early July it is a challenge to land sufficient competitive teams. Each year we start early, promote our competition and offer an exciting stage to host competitors. We hope to do the same in 2019.
