This event is free. However, you may donate here with our secure PayPal account.

Please join us, virtually. We are presenting this online-event instead of our annual fling at Burns Hall in Kincardine. But we have live chats where we can meet, greet and applaud our neighbours on YouTube and FaceBook.
22 January 2021, Friday at 7 PM Atlantic Time.

We are gathering up our virtual performers: old and new, near and far.
So, bake up some of Joe Farquhar’s Scotch Cakes and put the kettle on.

This event is free but we’ve added a Donate Page (hey, we’re Scottish!) to our website. Donations from this event go towards Burns Hall upkeep. Hopefully we’ll be back there for Burns Night, 2022.

This event should be available for viewing after the live premiere.

Please share and forward to the cousins!

Stay safe and warm.

Yes, it was a rainy, cold day at the Gathering of the Scots this year. Many said it was weather just like in Scotland. Many thanks to all the organizers and volunteers as well as the attendees who came to the festival. One of the booths was our very own, shown here.

Come to the “Gathering of the Scots Festival”

The Gathering of the Scots Festival will take place in Perth-Andover, New Brunswick on May 23-26, 2013. The big day is Saturday at Veteran’s Field on East Riverside Drive. Lots of bagpipes and kilts along with a full day of heavyweight games! Come early and stay for the day. Try some homemade haggis on a delicious bun with strawberry shortcake for dessert.
