Colorado Tartan Day fun. 2023


    National Tartan Day was created to celebrate Scottish history and the achievements of people of Scottish descent around the world. 


      The Declaration o' Aiberbrothock: A letter, dated 6 April 1320 was signed at Arbroath, written by Scottish barons and addressed to Pope John XXII. 

   Steeped in turmoil and political intrigue the declaration was part of a broader campaign for independence from England's Norman kings and a plea to lift the excommunication of Robert The Bruce.


   Every April, at the Boulder County Fairgrounds, in Longmont Colorado celebrates Tartan Day. This year the weather could not have been better, warm with NO WIND (which played havoc with the tents last year). 

  The reenactors were so friendly and very knowledgeable regarding the various clans and displays. 

The armaments' were wonderful to look at up close, and there was also a weaving and spinning demonstration  


I saw a faery, but she scurried away, look at her beautiful wings. 

Had a delightful time, and the piper gave us a tune as we bid farewell to another fun experience at 
Tartan Day.
