The Gathering of the Clans Highland Festival (GOTCHF, pronounced like ‘gotcha’ but with an ‘F’ sound added on at the end) is a public event hosted in Sedgewick, Alberta. This year it will take place on Saturday, August 21, 2021.
It’s a day full of highland festivities, such as highland dancing, a petting zoo, artisan and food vendors, and more. The day concludes with a pig-roast supper and a Ceilidh (dance) (pronounced kay-lee) performed by the band Cabot’s Crossing.
In 2019, we had over 900 people in attendance, along with 5 Clan Tents, 6 Demonstrators, 9 Alcohol and Food Vendors, 15 Forms of Entertainment, 31 Tents in the Vendor Village, and more.
