The Friday Night Gala is the formal kickoff for the Smoky Mountain Scottish Festival & Games. Wear your best dress and, for Scots, formal attire. We will meet in the Grand Foyer of the Clayton Center for the Arts on the Maryville College campus. Doors open at 5:45 P.M. for the reception. 

The evening features a haggis ceremony, dinner, and a to be announced special presentation.

The Gala entertainment will feature piper Chris Ridell, and harpist Kelly Shipe for dinner music and The Good Thymes Ceilidh band who will play some tunes and share information about Scottish music.
