To celebrate the bicentennial of Canada's first prime minister, Sir John A. Macdonald, the Scottish Society of Ottawa launched the first Kilt Skate event on January 31, 2015. Other cities joined in the celebration including Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Calgary, Saskatoon. The Kilt Skate phenomenon is now spreading to now include North Glengarry, Toronto, and Lloydminster! Moving into it’s fifth year, the Great Canadian Kilt Skate is indelibly Scottish and undeniably Canadian. It speaks to the Scottish contribution to Canada’s multicultural heritage.
The event is a chance to nurture your inner Scot, come to a skating party with a spirit of Scottish fun and fortitude wearing tartans and kilts.
The Kilt Skate phenomenon has been internationally recognized as a unique way to celebrate Scotland’s contribution to Canada’s multicultural heritage. We’ve been covered in the media from Scotland to Australia!
