About The Event
Do you know about your Scottish heritage? You can learn more about it at the upcoming Scottish Festival and Highland Games on November 19, 2022. The event will be hosted by the First Presbyterian Church of Chipley, a local church dedicated to preserving Scottish culture in the Panhandle. At this festival for all ages, you'll have the chance to meet other Scots-Americans, enjoy traditional music, and watch dance performances.
If that's not enough there are also athletic competitions like caber tossing (large logs) and throwing stones, as well as sheaf tossing. What better way is there to spend a Saturday afternoon than learning about your roots?
The town of Chipley is only about 45 minutes from Dothan and Panama City. It is a little over an hour west of Tallahassee.
Honorary Clan of 2021
The McNeill Clan
This year, the McNeill Clan will be the honorary clan at the Scottish Festival. They are derived from one of the oldest clans in Scotland, descended from Niall the High King of Irland from the 4th century. This is an exciting time for all of us because this event signifies our connection with one another and our Scottish heritage. It is important to celebrate where we come from, and what better way than by coming together as a family!
