jet con-trails forming a St. Andrew's Cross on a blue field overhead.
How appropriate was that?!? (Foto By Fischer)

First Weekend of March, 2020|
Fair Park, Dallas, TX
Come visit us in the "Scottish Village," comprised of about 28 to 30 clans and
Scottish-related societies. Better yet, get involved by joining one of them!
Thanks to all of you who stopped by our booth in 2109. It was a
great festival for us! We met lots and lots of festival goers
and had excellent "booth support" from our members... Thank
you all and we look forward to seeing you again in 2020.
Above, member Sharon Wolf (left) speaks with a guest at the 2017 Irish Fest,
at Fair Park, in Dallas. And yes ... that is the Hogwarts Railway pictured in front
of Sharon. It is a
real steam train running in west-central Scotland, between
Fort William and the port city of Mallaig. You may ride it, when you visit
Scotland! Below, former President Larry Duncan (right) speaks with another guest.

If you've not been by our booth at Irish Festival, it is always a
"double-wide" affair (prominently marked by the flags over the
left hand tent) as shown above during a quiet moment on Sunday
morning, at the 2017 festival. (Foto by Fischer)
2020 Dates will be posted as soon as they are available.
(Generally held on the last weekend of the March.)
The Society would like to thank all the festival attendees who dropped by our tent to
visit with us this year. It was a pleasure meeting each and everyone of you. Moreover,
a huge thank you is owed the Society members who came out to volunteer in the tent.
