bisb-4_0.jpgThe 2018 Canberra Burns Club Highland Gathering will take place on Saturday 6th October, 2018, on Kambah Oval in Kambah on the outskirts of Canberra. The Clan MacRae Society of Australia and New Zealand will be there flying our banner. There is no charge to attend the day’s activities and it operates from 10am to 5pm.

All MacRaes, with all its spellings, and anyone who has a relation with the MacRae name are all urged to visit our marquee. Bring along any friends as well and make yourself known. President Alan McRae and Secretary Roslyn MacRae are planning to be there so look for the ‘Clan MacRae’ banner amongst the Clan tents.

The Clan representatives, with their individual and colourful Clan banners, line up ready for the massed bands parade setting off at 10am. During this parade the Highland Gathering is officially opened.

Surrounding the main field will be a scene that looks like a Scottish market with many stalls with all things Scottish. They include traditional Scottish food such as Haggis and numerous other stalls selling food, recordings, Scottish clothing, books and souvenirs. For the younger ones there is the children’s corner with face painting and jumping castles. See the Scottie dogs and the strong men events, like tossing the caber.

The Clan MacRae Society of Australia and New Zealand have attended all the previous gatherings in Canberra which were all highly successful.

Look forward to seeing you there.
