What: 2018 “Jacobite Rising” event

When: Saturday September 15th—Sunday September 16th, 2018

Where: Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival (http://www.niagaraceltic.com/index.html) at Krull Park, Olcott Beach, New York


The 2018 Niagara Celtic Heritage Festival will be September 15th and 16th. We can set up our camp Friday afternoon, September 14th.


In the past, the name of this event has been "Raising the Standard" with the clans marching in and pledging their fealty to the Bonnie Prince, Charles Edward Stuart. Due to the lack of a young man able to portray Prince Charles this year, we must create a new venue. Chris Timm is retiring from the role of the Bonnie Prince after nearly 20 years. He is now taking on the personae of Baron John Murray, Lord Nairne, cousin of Lord George Murray, and brigade commander in the Army of King James. He will continue to narrate the various military drills for the benefit of the crowd of spectators who usually attend these activities.


Our Clann will once again be asked to fire the cannon(s) to start the the 5K race on Sunday morning, and a mid-18th century Presbyterian Covenanter worship service will be provided that morning.


The location of our encampment will remain the same, the west end of Krull Park where the stone wall is. We will once again be given an honorarium as part of our contract with the event organizers to provide our demonstrations, etc., which covers insurance, food, and powder costs.


Our International Chief, Patti Strickland, needs to know as soon as possible if you are planning to attend and how many there will be in your party as well as their names. We need to give the organizers a roster of attendees and get wrist bands for each attendee. Anyone without a wrist band will have to pay the gate fee. If you have never been to this festival, please consider it. Its not often we get to play and only have to pay our travel costs. If anyone needs to be picked up at an airport (i.e., the rather large contingent from the Florida Sept that usually attends) let NY Sept Chief Charlie Fuller know. We will have extra tents, etc. available if we know ahead of time.


Also, please let Chief Patti know if you want to put on any demonstrations, what your demonstration consists of, and any materials needed.


Our camp cook has not yet been announced, but we will all need to pitch in with food prep and cleanup so don't be bashful about asking how you can help.
