St. Andrews Society of Maine

COVID-19 and The Saint Andrew’s Society of Maine

With the Fort Knox Tattoo and the Maine Highland Games & Scottish Festival still months away the Saint Andrew’s Society Board and Highland Games Committee are continuing their planning on the premise that Tattoo and Highland Games will occur as planned. However, we are closely monitoring the rapidly evolving situation and will keep your health and safety as our highest concern.

As of this writing we have three bands set to play the Fort Knox Scottish Tattoo on July 11 at the Fort Knox Historic Site. We are working at inviting others to provide a magical evening of music on the banks of the Penobscot River. Visit the Fort Knox Website for ticket information (when available).

The Maine Highland Games planning progresses and we are looking forward to gathering at the Topsham Fairgrounds for a day enjoying the Scottish Heavy Events, border collies, fiddlers, harpers, food, and of course, the call of the Great Highland Pipes.

Rest assured, should the Tattoo or the Highland Games be cancelled due to the COVID-19, we will provide a full refund of all payments already made, including deposits. The Saint Andrews board will keep you updated as the events get closer, and information is made available. In the meantime, check our social media and websites for updates, and to borrow a word of advice from our friends at the Acadia Trad Festival, “…you can help contain this virus – and get in some practicing – by singing your favorite jig or reel one time through while you wash your hands!”

Slainte Mhath!
