sso & COMMUNITY EVENTS
VIP SSO MEMBERS RECEIVE 10% OFF ALL TICKETED EVENTS!
The SSO’s flagship event is an annual, free New Year’s Eve party – Hogman-eh! It was first held December 31, 2012, as a Hogmanay street party at Ottawa City Hall. Over 5,000 people enjoyed our rendition of the excitement of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay on the world famous Royal Mile.
Throughout the calendar year, the SSO also celebrates Rabbie Burns Day, commemorates St. Andrew’s Day, hosts a Scottish Breakfast in the spring, and organizes The Great Canadian Kilt Skate, an event which began in 2015 and is spreading to other cities across Canada.
With help from the Scottish Government, we are also proud to be promoting our OttScot festival this coming January!
