Live SteelThe haggis is a traditional Scots dish memorialized as the national dish of Scotland by Robert Burns' poem 'Address to a Haggis' in 1787.

...Ye Pow'rs, wha mak mankind yer care,
And dish them out their bill o' fare,
Auld Scotland wants nae skinking ware
That jaups in luggies;
But, if ye wish her gratefu' prayer
Gie her a haggis!

Robert Burns

Regimental Pipes DrumsThe Regimental Pipes & Drums is a new living history organization, formed in late 2021. The group portrays a pipe band of The Black Watch (The Royal Highland Regiment), part of the 51st Highland Division of the British Army during World War II.

The 51st Highland Division, composed of many battalions of the historic Scottish regiments, took part in many of the famous campaigns of the war, including North Africa, Sicily and Northwestern Europe. They not only wear authentic uniforms to illustrate soldiers on campaign, but they also play period bagpipe music that would have raised the soldiers' morale and accompanied them during the great victory parades.

The Jacobites"I will share the fate o' my Prince, and so shall every man over whom God and Nature has given me power!" So proclaimed the gallant Lochiel as he brought his 900 Cameron Highlanders into the service of Bonnie Prince Charlie at Glenfinnan at the head of Loch Shiel in August 1745. Forming the nucleus of Charlie's army, the Camerons (whose battle cry was "Sons of hounds, come hither and eat flesh!") were followed closely that morning by the Keppoch MacDonalds . . . and the Rising of '45 was on! Sit back and enjoy the Jacobite experience, which actually begins with the abdication of James II and the invasion of the Dutch Prince William of Orange in 1688, and hear the spirited songs which help to illustrate the period of the exiled Stuarts and the many attempts by the loyal Highlanders to help them regain their throne. After "the Forty-Five", life in the Highlands changed, and changed utterly; the landscape created by the government destruction on all things Highland is still visible to this very day. It is a story that has to be told, and Charlie Zahm will tell it like no other.

Veterans ServiceOne unique feature of the Annual Covenanter Scottish Festival is the historical significance of the location. Situated on the site of two colonial Presbyterian churches, with three cemeteries, we have a large number of veterans buried on the grounds. There are veterans from every major conflict that has been fought in North America, from the French and Indian Wars through to the first Gulf war, buried on these grounds. Each year, with the help of the Washington Memorial Pipe Band and all of the Clans and organizations, we honor one of these veterans.
