Thought I would share some events coming up this weekend.
First up, it's the Dundee Scottish Festival in Dundee, NY! They will have a wide variety of music this year featuring entertainment from Ontario, Canada, and Western New York! Highland Dancing, piping and drumming, Highland Games and Scottish vendors abound!
If you're out west, check out the Arizona Highland Celtic Festival in Flagstaff on July 16th and 17th. There will be rugby, piping and drumming, Highland dance, Games, live music, beer tent and more!
Flagstaff has mens, womens, and high school Rugby programs. The mens team has made the Division III Sweet Sixteen two years in a row and the high school team made the state finals in Division II this year as well as the semi-finals in the Rio Grande Celtic 7’s tournament in Albuquerque on May 21, 2016.
Mr. August, Conor Fabrycki, in the 2016 North American Pipe Band Calendar was photographed here last year! Make sure to say hi to him if you're there! Here's his photo to help you find him... You can pick one up just in time to hang him on your wall next month!
I'm really excited to see so many pipe bands participating this year. Scotia-Glenville, Manchester and the Worcester Kilties will be challenging up for the Gr 2 competition.
Live music runs in the beer tent until 9:30pm. Bands include Albannach, Enter the Haggis and the Screaming Orphans.
It's HOT and humid out there, make sure and stay cool with a nice adult beverage!
As always, check the W&T calendar for even more happenings and let me know if you don't see your event posted.
