Scottish Clans (Scottish Name Societies) are an important part of Scottish history and tradition. We are pleased to have one of the largest attendances in our Glen of Clans of Scottish Clans and organizations in North America. In 2015, 60 Clans and Scottish organizations attended.
Clan and organization representatives will be more than happy to help you discover your family history and how to participate in their activities. Please stop by the Glen of the Clans and explore your heritage. Even if you are not Scottish they are a great source of information on Scottish heritage and traditions.
If you don’t see your Clan, contact your national Clan organization and suggest they come next year.
The SVSG&F annually recognizes a Best Clan with an award, and the honor of leading the Parade of the Clans at the Noon Ceremonies. Clans are judged on presentation, hospitality, and enthusiasm. The 2016 Best Clan award winner was: Clan Farquharson.
