You don’t have to be Scottish to enjoy the culture, music and history of Scotland. You can find a ‘wee bit’ of Scotland with the Dixon Scottish Cultural Association (DSCA).
Founded in 2000, the non-profit organization will host its 16th annual Dixon Scottish Highland Games on Saturday, September 24 at the Dixon Fairgrounds. The festival will feature bagpipe bands, Highland dance performances, Scottish folk and rock music, Scottish athletic competitions, Scottish food and gift vendors, Scottish animal exhibits and more fun.
“We are expecting more than 3,500 visitors at our Scottish games this year,” said Don Burns, event publicist. “But, our club needs more volunteers to make this a successful community festival,” he added.
DSCA members meet at 6 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month at the American Legion Hall, 1305 North First Street, Dixon. Upcoming meetings are June 15, July 20, August 17 and September 21. Club membership is not required to be a Dixon Scottish games volunteer.
“Portions of our Dixon Scottish games profits have been pledged to encourage local youth to get involved in Scottish culture. We have made donations that enabled young future bagpipers, Scottish Highland dancers and Scottish sport athletes to take classes to advance their skills,” said DSCA sponsorship chair Bill Scott.
“We also support the youth of Dixon. Our donations have been made to American Legion youth programs, Dixon Future Farmers of America and Boy Scout Troop 152,” Scott stated.
The Dixon society also hosts other Scottish cultural activities, including its formal Robert Burns Supper in February.
