It was our honour to be part of this historic day.
To the members of the band....thank you for coming out in the cold and being a part of this special event. Well done. Mason did a great job with the Lament, and Big Ben leading the way as Drum Major...post healing a broken leg.
The Grimsby Pipe is pleased to announce our new Bass Drum logo. Be sure to look for it at all of our events and parades.

Your entertainment will be The Schiehallion Highland Dancers, The Oakville Celtic Fiddle Orchestra, and of course the Pipes and Drums of the Grimsby Pipe Band. DJ Greg will be returning again this year to provide good dancing music.
There will be a light luncheon provided as well.
Also....we promise the largest Raffle table to date, and our legendary 50-50 draw. In 2017 the winner of the 50-50 draw walked away with almost $600.00. As well, we will have a Silent Auction, including a full Highland Kilt Outfit (valued at $1800, starting bid at $250). Please refer to the Events page for a picture and details of the Highland Kilt outfit.

Come out and support your only non-funded Pipe and Drum band in the area. All funds raised assist with the costs of running a community pipe band....with the Grimsby Pipe Band participating in almost 30 events during the year.
The aim for 2018 are new Pipe Chanters and brand new Drum Heads with updated logo and much more. Again all this is done through hard work, and this, our only Fundraiser for the year. So buy a ticket....come out and have a great evening....again all for only $25.
