Countdown to the 2018 Celtic Festival

Scottish Christmas Walk

For the 47th consecutive year, The Campagna Center proudly presents The Scottish Christmas Walk Parade.

Come, show your support with a show of strength and join CSSM in the parade! Don your kilts and plaids (or other Celtic costume/gear), bring your proud pups and bonnie babes–all are welcome! Have a Celtic-related talent? Maybe bring that too (as long as you can carry it/perform while walking)!

Enjoy marching units filled with the magnificent tartans of Scottish Clans, the stirring sound of Scottish bagpipes and drums, Scottish dancers, reenactment groups, Scottie dogs, dignitaries, classic cars, Santa Claus, and much more. The parade begins at St. Asaph and Wolfe Streets and concludes at Market Square with a massed band concert. The parade will take place rain or shine. Participation is free.

If you wish to join CSSM in the parade, please contact

Meet-up is at 10am (the parade route streets are closed to traffic by 10am). Kick-off is at 11am.
