This family-favorite cultural event explores Scottish clan tents to learn more about their rich ancestry and culture. Merchants selling kilts, crafts, and other gifts will join Scottish organizations from across the East Coast to greet visitors with information on all aspects of their rich heritage.

Inside Fort Ticonderoga, discover the heroic stories of Scottish soldiers in the British Army serving at Ticonderoga and North America through the campaigns of the 18th century. Thrill at musket demonstrations which will highlight the equipment, clothing, and tactics of the red-coated Scottish soldier, during the defining military campaigns that shaped North America.

Lively performances include Vermont Highland Dance, the Fifes and Drums of Fort Ticonderoga, and solo pipers from the City of Albany Pipe Band and the Leatherstocking District Pipe Band. The full day of activities includes special guided tours and a remembrance service on the Carillon Battlefield at the Memorial Cairn. Carillon boat cruises will carry visitors onto the water to explore the epic historic landscape and its strategic importance during the 18th century.
