The Society was formed to perpetuate our Scottish heritage. In this respect, we support those who carry on the Scottish Traditions. Our children are our heritage and for them we support the Dunedin High School and Middle School Pipe Bands, Highland dance instruction and the Dunedin Highland Games.
The Scottish Country Dancers of Dunedin welcome all Scots and “non-Scots” who love to dance to join them. We love to honor those who have emigrated and brought with them their family and traditions.
On a Friday night, you can experience an old style Ceilidh (party) with singing and dancing and fun by all who attend.
This Society has special dinners honoring St. Andrew (the patron Saint of Scotland) and Robert Burns (the famous poet of Scotland). These nights are full of tradition and wonderful food, with many guests dressed in traditional kilts.
Other dinners honor occasions like Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day and of course, Hogmanay (New Years Eve), all with great entertainment, dancing and — what else? –great food!
We also have picnics and planned group trips to area events.
Please join us and share the fun!
