Upcoming Event: Georgetown Highland Games

We have participated in the Fergus Scottish Festival for many years now and vending there has been fairly profitable for us.  So, we decided to try branching out to another similar event this year, the Georgetown Highland Games.  It takes place this Saturday, June 11th at the Georgetown Fairgrounds, 1 Park Avenue in Georgetown, ON.

From the outside, it does not appear to be a well organized as the Fergus event.  We don't even know what time we have to be there to set up or what time the event is over.  The first indication we were even accepted to vend was when the bank statement showed that the cheque had been cashed.  A week or so after that we received a short, message via e-mail stating that we were 'in'.

No other information was forthcoming, so I've sent an e-mail to several members of the committee to try and clarify things for us.  What I do know is that all the events seem to get started at 8:30 a.m. and that all the awards ceremonies begin at 5 p.m.  We're aiming to be there at 7 a.m. to set up shop.

The Georgetown Highland Games are committed to promoting and preserving Scottish culture & heritage in our community.  This year is the 36th year for this local event.
