Don’t miss Old Town Alexandria’s most spectacular holiday weekend. In 1749, the City of Alexandria was officially established by three Scottish merchants and named after its original founder, John Alexander, also of Scottish descent. Today, the city continues celebrating its heritage with a weekend of festivities. The iconic Scottish Christmas Walk Parade presented by The Campagna Center takes place on Saturday, December 5, at 11 a.m., when dozens of Scottish clans dressed in colorful tartans will parade through the streets of Old Town, joined by pipe and drum bands from around the region, as well as terriers and hounds.
More weekend events include a Taste of Scotland (December 5), Heather and Greens sale (December 4 & 5), The Campagna Center’s Holiday Designer Tour of Homes (December 5).
Consistently ranked by the Southeast Tourism Society as one of the top 20 events in the South, this event has grown from a small informal parade to an entire weekend filled with events and festivities.
Proceeds from all events of the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend benefit The Campagna Center’s core programs that help children and families from cradle to career by providing high quality early learning experiences, preschool programs, enrichment learning and guidance through high school, and English Language Learning for adults.
