Sunday afternoon is shaping up to be wonderful afternoon with Christmas in the Village. As you scamper around supporting the various businesses and events, be sure to stop into the Centre before 2:00 pm (if not already planning to participate in the Christmas planter and macrame workshop). For a small donation towards WEC’s breakfast/lunch program, you can sit back and not only enjoy Mary Janet MacDonald as she cooks up a storm for her Live FB show Tunes & Wooden Spoons, but also some of the terrific talent she had lined up. Paul MacNeil, Tracey Dares and their children will be performing by bagpipes, fiddle and piano and also treating us to a brief reading from Paul’s new mystical novel. There will be snacks and beverages and door prizes for those attending. Thank you to Lisa Harrison who kindly donated a holiday season painting and a couple of pairs of cozy sweater mittens for door prizes. Talent abounds within Inverness County. Come on out and and enjoy this live kitchen party atmosphere! 🎄🎻🎅🏽 ... See MoreSee Less

Exciting things have happened at the Highland Village this year as we have opened our new Welcome Centre. To help complete our Next Chapter Campaign we’ve received support from all over the world to make this project a reality and we need your support too!

The redevelopment project is focused on improving and growing the site, allowing the opportunity for Highland Village to expand its programming year-round.

Nova Scotia is the only region outside of Scotland and Ireland where Gaelic language and culture are still shared intergenerationally - transmitting through families, communities, and educational programming.

With being so close to realizing our goal, your support will enable us to preserve Gaelic heritage, history, and culture for future generations, deepening their experience.

Be a part of this important part of our history by joining us and donating today.

We want to take this moment to thank you for all your kindness and support. We can't wait to see you at the Highland Village in 2023.

“Leanaibh dlùth ri cliù bhur sinnsir. | Uphold the renowned ways of your ancestors.”
