Hogman-eh! 2017 Major Sponsor.

       

Join us at the Aberdeen Pavilion on December 31st for the Scottish Society of Ottawa’s Annual Hogman-eh! festival – our unique new year’s celebration with a Scottish flavour.

Hogman-eh! will provide thousands of residents from across the National Capital Region and beyond with the opportunity to ring in the New Year at a FREE family-friendly celebration. Inaugurated in 2012, our annual Hogman-eh! features some of the greatest in Scottish musical entertainment, plenty of options to enjoy Scottish food and drink, a Scotch tasting bar, Highland and Scottish dancing, children’s activities, a Scottish New Year countdown (7:00 PM in Ottawa) for the wee ones, capped off with singing Auld Lang Syne and fireworks at midnight.

Hogman-eh! 2017 will be the sixth annual party held in Ottawa. As the SSO’s marquee event, we aim to rejuvenate the historic and blood-links between Scotland and Canada, celebrating the Scots love of music, dance, history, sport and literature.

The Scottish diaspora in Canada represents more than five million hardy souls and is our nation’s third largest ethnic group. Scots helped settle eastern Ontario and built vibrant communities named after the places they left behind – New Edinburgh, Glengarry County, Perth, Renfrew. Our mission is to better promote an awareness and appreciation of Scottish culture, and its significant contribution to the fabric of Canadian society and identity through widespread public engagement among as many Canadians of all backgrounds as possible.
