GATHERING OF THE CLANS
Save the Date!
August 20, 2022
On behalf of the Flagstaff Scottish Club, we would like to thank everyone for being part of our event. We deeply appreciate you prioritizing our event despite the last minute planning. After the “Open for Summer” announcement, we didn’t know what to expect. At first, we were thinking that we would have to downsize the scale of the event due to little interest or availability from both entertainment and the public. However, we were blown away by the amount of people that responded with things such as “we wouldn't miss it”. And with that, our small-scale planning quickly escalated into “we have too much to offer to downscale.”
It is because of our amazing community of people that our events become so successful. Everyone's enthusiasm makes for a memorable part of GOTCHF. So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. Thank you to the nearly 1000 of you who came to be part of the beautiful day!
We look forward to seeing you all in the future, whether it’s back at one of our events or otherwise.
Our 4th Annual GOTCHF will be August 20, 2022.
The Gathering of the Clans Highland Festival (GOTCHF, pronounced like 'gotcha' but with an 'F' sound added on at the end) is a public event hosted in Sedgewick, Alberta.
It's a day full of highland festivities, such as Heavy Events, highland dancing, a petting zoo, artisan and food vendors, and more. The day concludes with a pig-roast supper and a Ceilidh (dance) (pronounced kay-lee) performed by the band Cabot's Crossing.
In 2021, we had around 1000 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.
