In their 41st year as host of the Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend and Parade, The Campagna Center is proud to kick off Alexandria’s holiday season with the fresh scent of heather and the festive melody of bagpipes once again! With this historical year, the Center has partnered with The Scottish Government (PREMIER SPONSOR) to celebrate this honored tradition.

The Campagna Center’s Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend events, with the exception of the Parade and the Holiday Designer Tour of Homes, will be held at the George Washington Masonic Memorial. The Memorial is located at 101 Callahan Drive (at the intersection of King & Callahan) in Alexandria. Events held at the Memorial include:

  • Christmas Marketplace (FRIDAY ONLY)
  • Heather & Greens Sale
  • Deck the Halls with Santa
  • Taste of Scotland

What better than a city rich in Scottish heritage to serve as the gathering site for more than 100 clans and pipe and drum bands from far and near with their faithful companions, the terriers and hounds. Along with this year’s Premier Sponsor, The Scottish Government, The St. Andrew’s Society of Washington, D.C. partners with The Campagna Center and the city of Alexandria to sponsor the annual parade.

Tourists travel from throughout the mid-Atlantic region to participate in this celebrated community event.
