Get ready to open the Montana Highland Festival season with Kilt o' the Falls 2018. This year we'll be seeing you on June 16th. Unfortunately due to funding issues we have canceled our second day, but with your help we will still be able to enjoy a day filled with Highland Games, Clans, Celtic music, dancers, and vendors. Great Falls Spinners and Weavers Guild will be doing demonstrations for us once again.
Stage entertainment for the day will feature newcomers Sean-Nos and Geoff Carroll, as well as returning musicians Thorns Among Roses and Joe Ryan.
Burns' Night 2018
Ah, the smell of haggis in the evening. Once again we will be having our Burn's Night Fundraiser at The Celtic Cowboy in Great Falls, MT. Join us Jan 27th at 6:30pm for poetry, music, drinks and food. The Celtic Cowboy is adding Highlander Beer and a drink special to their offerings just for the occasion, along with a special Scottish menu, including but not limited to the staring sausage, Haggis made with ingredients donated by Montana company A Land of Grass.
Other local companies are helping out by donating a variety of goods to our silent auction.
Burns' Night is a traditional celebration of the national poet of Scotland, Robert Burns (1/25/1759-7/2/1796). Burns' wrote 191 poems and 368 songs, including Auld Lang Syne, Scots Wa Hae, and Ode to the Haggis. He gained popularity in his own time and long after for his promotion of Scottish culture at a time it was at risk of fading under England's influence. Burns' Night has been celebrated off and on in Great Falls since 1891.
