GATHERING OF THE CLANS
The Gathering of the Clans Highland Festival (GOTCHF, pronounced like 'gotcha' but with an F added on at the end) is a public event hosted in Sedgewick, Alberta.
It's a day full of Scottish activities, such as heavy games, highland dancing, a petting zoo, artisan and food vendors, and more. The day concludes with a Ceilidh (dance) performed by the band Cabot's Crossing.
In 2019, we had over 900 people in attendance, along with 5 Clan Tents, 6 Demonstrators, 9 Alcohol and Food Vendors, 15 Forms of Entertainment, 31 Tents in the Vendor Village, and more.
Due to COVID-19, our 3rd Annual Gathering of the Clans Highland Festival is now set for August 21st, 2021!
We want to thank everyone for their continued support of our club and the Battle River Pipes and Drums Band. These events all go towards supporting our band. Be sure to mark your calendars for next year's GOTCHF and catch us out on our Quarantine Tour!
