The Caledonia and District Pipes and Drums, established in April 2001, made their debut appearance at the Caledonia Canada Day Parade, July 1, 2002.

They practise every Thursday evening at the Grand Trunk Train Station in Caledonia. An Ontario Trillium Grant assisted to outfit the complete band in an Antique Caledonia Tartan.

Although Caledonia has had Concert Bands at different periods in its history, the community has never had a Pipe and Drum Band. Their popularity is growing in leaps and bounds. The community is thrilled to hear the pipes and drums on the boardwalk and platform at the renovated train station during practice sessions. The number of engagements during the past four months since their debut is astonishing, not only for the entire band but also for individual pipers and drummers.
