Tartan Day Ceilidh

Tartan Day, a national celebration of Scottish heritage, might take place on Wednesday, but the Cincinnati Caledonian Pipes & Drums Band is bringing the party home this weekend. One of the oldest pipe bands in the country, CCP&D was established in 1912 with the mission of preserving Scottish culture and heritage with music and public events. Its annual ceilidh — Scottish for “party” — is an all-out bash. In addition to performances from the band, the day features a haggis-eating contest, treats from Scottish bakeries, a Scotch tasting and traditional dances from several local groups, including the Cincinnati Scots Highland Dancers.


6-10 p.m. Saturday. $15 adults; $8 children 11 and younger. American Legion Post 72, 497B Old State Route 74, Mount Carmel, cincypipesanddrums.org
