Scottish Games And Gathering
Come on out and Get Yer Plaid On! This event gets bigger and better every year! This is a day of great fun, a day of tradition. A day that had something for everyone, Scottish or not. If you've never experienced the Games, come and see what brings people back year after year. It's a fun packed day that is filled with things to do: Scottish heavy athletics, genealogy, clans and family history, live music on multiple stages, sheepdog herding demos, dance shows, a large area just for children, a petting zoo and a multitude of really great food and merchandise vendors. Stop by the Society Booth on your way in! •Purchase raffle tickets (raffles will be held throughout the day and you don't have to be present to win) and programs •Purchase shot glasses, pint glasses, t-shirts, Irn Bru, stickers, and clan tartans •Sign up to become a member or renew your membership to the Kern County Scottish Society •Sign-up for the Haggis Toss and the Bonny Knee Competition •Include your family member in the Memoriam Opening ceremonies start at noon. March of the Clans, the Marching Pipe and Drum Competitors, The Queen and Her Court, and a very special Honorary Chieftain of the Day, to be announced soon! Don't forget to try a Banger at the Kern County Scottish Society Banger Booth and try a little scotch tasting in Building 3. If you've never tried scotch, this is your chance to hone your taste for this nectar of the Gods. Visit the Tea Room inside Building 2 to enjoy a tea and scone while listening to acoustic music. The Kern County Genealogical Society is also inside Building 2. Building 2 will have our vendors selling a great variety of things: kilts, swords, soaps, jewelry, tams, toys, sgian dubhs, coats of arms, pottery, music, and any thing you can think of that is related to the Seven Celtic Nations. Sorry to say, no picnic baskets, outside coolers, outside food or drinks are allowed to be brought in to the festival grounds. Non-threatening dogs on leashes are allowed when accompanied by doggie bags.
