Edmonton Scottish Society Highland Gathering 

June 23, 2019
Grant MacEwan Park
Edmonton, AB

Whether you're a Scot...or not - join us at our biggest and most colourful event of the year, the Edmonton Scottish Highland Gathering. Dozens of colourful Pipe and Drum bands fill the air with the distinctive wail that instantly transports you back in time.  Besides the opportunity to witness a field full of brawny men and bonny lassies in kilts competing in the heavy contests of strength, skill and endurance, you will be charmed by the graceful movements and the keen competition of dancers in the Highland Dancing Competitions. Watch for Kilted Colin performing at noon and 4 pm, playing the bagpipes while perched upon a unicycle juggling swords (http://Vimeo.com/306478486?) There will be  Sheep Dog and Scottish Country Dancing demonstrations,  Bouncy Castle and face painting and games for the children. This year we will be having a Wee Ones Heavy Events - bring your wee bairns down for a try at the pint sized heavy athletics including the wee caber toss and haggis throw. There will also be traditional Scottish food, merchants selling Scottish Wares, a Beer Tent, Clan Tents, a Whiskey Tasting Tour and much more.
