Cultural Event of the Month: Glasgow Lands Scottish Festival, July 19, in Massachusetts

The Boston Irish Tourism Association has named the Glasgow Lands Scottish Festival as the Cultural Event of the Month in Massachusetts.  The festival, now in its 21st year, is taking place on Saturday, July 19, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Look Park in Florence, MA, just outside of Northampton.

"It’s a wonderful family event that celebrates Scottish heritage in Massachusetts and the New England states," says BITA director Colette Quinlin.  Among the day's activities: continuous Scottish music and dancing, a gathering of Scottish clans and societies, bagpipe competitions, athletic contests and plenty of authentic Irish products, including food, beverage and gifts.

Western Massachusetts has Scottish connections that date back to 1753, when Ulster Scots settled there, according to festival organizer Peter Langmore.  Read the full story here
