Celtic Classic – Clans and Societies
This month’s Celtic Cultural Minute features information about the educational resources available at this year’s Celtic Classic; running September 27th through the 29th at the Historic Industrial Quarter in downtown Bethlehem.
Last week, we shared information about the expanded area of the festival featuring educational activities and resources for people of all ages to learn more about Celtic heritage and traditions. It will be called, “Heritage Hollow.”
Also new to the Heritage Hollow is our Clans and Societies Area. Even though you will see representatives from participating groups in the parade that steps off Saturday, September 28th at 11am; Clans and Societies will have locations in the Heritage Hollow where you will be able to learn about genealogy, history, and the different families or clans that make up the Celtic Nations. You can also learn a thing or two about kilts, Celtic cooking, or how to reconnect with your own Celtic heritage.
The following Clans and Societies in Heritage Hollow this year include:
- Clan Buchanan
- Clan MacAlister
- Clan MacCallum-Malcolm
- Clan Scott
- Clan Sinclair
- PA Cornwall Association
- Scottish Society of the Lehigh Valley
