Event description

Description

The Gaelic word for “Clan” is children, but is best translated as “family.” Originally, each clan was made up of the descendants of one man and his children. Today, a Clan is a social group that comprises a number of families derived from, or accepted as being derived from, a common ancestor. Almost without exception, that core is accompanied by an added number of dependent and associated families who have either sought the protection of the clan at some point in history or have been tenants or vassals of its chief.

This year the Alaska Scottish Highland Games is pleased to announce upgrades to our Annual Gathering of The Clans! In addition to the VIP parking pass, complimentary tickets for two (2) Clan representatives, Friday afternoon Ceilidh, participation in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, and acknowledgement in the program booklet, registered Clans will also recieve:

  • A dedicated space for your tent (12’ x 12’) or display (6’ x 6’);

  • Access to our exclusive Great Hall (refreshment tent);

  • A special introduction during the Opening Ceremonies and area to plant a banner or flag on the ‘community’ grounds;

  • Awards for the “Best Tent/Display” and “Best Dressed”

A fund has been established in order join the ranks of our more prestigious counterparts across the country, and to promote the growth of our own event. It belongs to the Families, Clans, and Societies who participate in our annual Gathering to provide support for the Great Hall, awards, and communal needs. A flat $15.00 registration cost includes everything detailed above.
