Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend

On December 5 - 6, 2014, we will host the 44th Annual Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend and Parade, in partnership with The Scottish Government, The Saint Andrew's Society of Washington, D.C. and the City of Alexandria. Warm your heart with holiday cheer and join a full lineup of festivities that celebrates the rich Scottish heritage of Old Town Alexandria.  Tour historic Old Town homes decorated for the season, wander through a marketplace full of greenery and unique gifts, purchase greenery for your Christmas decorations, enjoy the tastes of fine Scotch, and last, but certainly not least, take in the sights and sounds of the unique Scottish Christmas Walk Parade with its stirring bagpipes and magnificent Clan tartans. The Weekend is hosted by The Campagna Center, and proceeds benefit its six educational programs that touch people of every age group.
