Hello extended family—we are trying to make this a BIG year for Clan MacNeil in Canada! We’ve decided to be a featured clan at this year’s Fergus Scottish Festival & Highland and will be holding a MacNeil gathering at a nearby. We would LOVE to have as many MacNeils as possible walk in the opening ceremonies, celebrate with us, and connect throughout the weekend.

The weekend (August 9-11) is jam-packed with band competitions, highland dance, heavy weight championships, whisky tastings, exciting special guests, genealogy workshops AND President of Clan MacNeil in Canada, Vince MacNeil, will be on site to share his unmatched knowledge about our MacNeils.

The family-friendly weekend is also a great opportunity to introduce the new generation to their rich Scottish heritage in a fully immersive setting.
