The creation of a pipe band was inspired by the Guelph Burns Club, which celebrated poet Robbie Burns in the local Scottish diaspora. To fund the band, a Tag Day campaign raised $72 and the Victoria-Guelph Chapter of the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire collected $500. The Guelph Pipe Band was officially formed in the fall of 1922.
