In their 39th year as host of the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend, The Campagna Center will launch Alexandria’s holiday season with the fresh scent of heather and the festive melody of bagpipes throughout the quaint streets of Old Town.
The Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend events, with the exception of the Parade and the Holiday Designer Tour of Homes, will be held at the George Washington Masonic Memorial. The Memorial is located at 101 Callahan Drive (at the intersection of King & Callahan) in Alexandria. Events held at the Memorial include:
- Christmas Marketplace
- Heather & Greens Sale
- Children’s Tea Party
- Taste of Scotland
What better than a city rich in Scottish heritage to be the gathering site for more than 100 clans and pipe and drum bands from far and near with their faithful companions, the terriers and hounds.
Consistently ranked by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of the top 20 events in the South, the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend draws nearly 30,000 individuals and families to the Parade. Tourists travel from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region to participate in this celebrated community event.
