Event description

Description

The Carolina Caledonian Fest is a celebration of the the Argyll Colony, the largest and most significant community of Scot Highlanders in America. Over 160,000 Highlanders came to the Tar Heel State in the 18th Century and settled the Cape Fear Region and established the towns of Campbellton and Cross Creek (later merged to become Fayetteville). Over a million of their descendants live in the region today. We will explore the Argyll Colony's origins and culture, the way they lived, and recall the bitter times that drove them here. Most importantly, we will honor their legacy.
