ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Scottish Christmas Walk is a beloved tradition that takes place in Old Town Alexandria annually. Yesterday the Campagna Center sent out an email anouncing they are looking for sponsors.
In August the Campagna Center broke the news that after 50 years of organizing the parade, they decided to turn over the responsibility to Visit Alexandria. But the organization is still inovolved in gathering vounteers and will host the annual Taste of Scotland.
The Scottish Walk Christmas Weekend takes place this year from December 2 to 3, opening with the Taste of Scotland at the Torpedo Factory Art Center on Friday, Dec. 2.
Sign up for a sponsorship by Friday, Nov. 18 to be included media coverage and reserve a spot at the Taste of Scotland, which will benefit the Campagna Center. See sponsorship levels and become a sponsor HERE.
Commonly known as Alexandria’s biggest holiday weekend, the Scottish Walk events celebrate Alexandria’s Scottish heritage. The city was founded in 1749 by John Alexander, “a Scotsman who owned the land that became Alexandria,” according to Viist Alexandria’s website.
The Alexandria Scottish Christmas Walk Parade is produced by Visit Alexandria in partnership with The Campagna Center and the City of Alexandria.
