Dundee Scottish Festival faces unknown future

DUNDEE--The Dundee Scottish Association has announced the decade-old Dundee Scottish Festival will not be held this year. The announcement was made in a press release by the board saying "resources are not available to support a festival in the upcoming year."
The event, which has been located at a number of locations in Dundee, has faced unpredictable weather, regional events competing for visitors and a large reliance on volunteers to make the event successful. Most recently the festival was held at the VFW as a paid admission event.
Chair Fran Willis recently mentioned the need of new members for the planning and leadership of the festival if it would return.
The association said it will still support youth programs through the TRAILS program at Dundee Central School and the Highlander and Lady Scott program.
They will also continue the mid-winter Ceilidh, a Celtic social gathering. The event is planned for Saturday, Feb. 22 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Dundee American Legion. The band Three Stone Fire and the Caledonian Highlanders Pipes and Drum Band will perform at the festival.
